Pathways (manchester.ac.uk/pathways/) is a major, University-wide careers event for PhD researchers and research staff. Now in its 12th year, Pathways welcomes around 500 researchers annually from across the University. The event is designed to support you in exploring your future plans and discovering the breadth of opportunities available to you.
For just one day, join hundreds of Manchester researchers, past and present across all faculties, to share their experience and help you plan your future - wherever it might lead you. The event will be held on Thursday, 7 June, 9.00am – 4.30pm, in the Renold Building, North Campus.
The morning will consist of ‘Question and Answer’ panel sessions with people who have either completed their PhDs or moved on from university research posts in the last ten years. In the afternoon, a panel of employers and others will provide advice on the practicalities of getting jobs with a doctorate. If you’re a current or recent PhD, member of research or teaching staff here at the University, this free event is for you. Lunch is provided.
The careers service are also looking for early career academic staff and postdocs to sit on some of the discussion panels on the day, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in participating.
