Webinar: Taking your research interests
beyond your PhD in building a career
Wednesday 28th July - 11.30am to 12.30pm (AEST)
Knowing the next steps to take after finishing your PhD can be daunting. Understanding the professional and academic landscapes presents a challenge to many new graduates.
AAG's Student and Early Career Group (SECG) and Emerging Researchers in Ageing (ERA) presents insight into the different pathways post-PhD that are available to PhD students and how to build connections with academia, industry and government. The three presenters will share their knowledge and experience on how to transition from study to work in the field of ageing.
Presenters: A/Prof Danijela Gnijidic, Dr Elissa Burton, and Dr Maria Shialis
