The Institute of Physics, STFC and Royal Astronomical Society are organising a special careers event for STFC-funded early career researchers. This event will give an insight into the broad range of career paths open to STFC PhD-holders.
This event aims to help, inspire and motivate you to explore the careers options open to you in a welcoming and friendly environment. You will hear from a range of speakers, all holders of PhDs in nuclear physics, astronomy or particle physics, who have gone on to pursue interesting, successful careers in diverse areas – both in and outside academia.
The well-known space scientist Professor Monica Grady CBE will provide the keynote address and there will then be parallel sessions throughout the day, featuring speakers from the worlds of finance, government policy, education, software development and academia, plus a novelist. You will be asked to choose which sessions to attend.
