Careers Conference for Researchers 2019

The Careers Conference for Researchers targeted late-stage DPhil students and research staff who are considering career options beyond academia. This popular annual conference combined ‘day in the life of’ panel sessions covering sectors of greatest interest to researchers, skills workshops and extended opportunities to engage with employers who actively look to recruit researchers at our networking lunch and drinks reception.

See the conference booklet here. Podcasts from the conference will be made available soon so watch this space!
