The Nanoscale Physics and Technology Group invites you to explore your career options at our one-day workshop.
“According to an August 2012 survey carried out by the American Institute of Physics, nearly half of new physics PhD students at US institutions want to work in a university. The next most popular career plan among those surveyed was “unsure”.” From “The Academic Pyramid”, Physics World, October 2012.
Are you a PhD student or postdoctoral researcher in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology? Are you considering your career options? If so, then we would like to invite you to a careers exploration day hosted by the Nanoscale Physics and Technology Group at the Institute of Physics.
This will be followed by talks and an opportunity for discussion with a group of nanoscience PhD graduates, who have followed a variety of career paths, including academia, industry, publishing, teaching, etc..., and who will recount their experiences of exploiting their doctoral qualification in different fields beyond academic research. These PhD graduates will provide you with tips on how they entered their respective fields, and will answer any questions you may have during the roundtable and Q&A sessions.
