Pathways - Careers for Doctoral Researchers

UPDATE

Due to the pandemic, unfortunately Pathways 2020 was unable to run. We will investigate alternative ways to support our researchers through linking them to our alumni and other former doctoral researchers.

In the meantime, please see our Meet the Professionals alumni events running throughout the year, with panels including many postgraduate alumni.

Pathways 2019 - for information

Pathways is an annual careers event for PhD researchers and research staff.

The event is designed to support delegates in making career choices, exploring future plans and discovering the breadth of opportunities available.

Comprising over 10 different panel based sessions with PhDs from a diverse range of career areas and backgrounds, plus seminars, there's something for all students and researchers from all areas of study and at any stage in their career planning.

Career Panels

Guest panellists include those who have either completed their PhDs or moved on from university research posts in the last 10 years, or who have expertise in the job market for PhDs and researchers.
