Increasingly, Ph.D.-level scientists are becoming aware of other career opportunities beyond bench research. Not only are scientists interested in pursuing nonresearch based careers, but the discord between the number of graduate students and postdocs, and the availability of tenure-track faculty positions means that these are no longer “alternative” career options. What sorts of opportunities can scientists pursue? What sorts of skills do they need to develop in order to succeed in nonresearch jobs? How can they find these sorts of positions?
This webinar will look at the various career options open to scientists across different sectors, strategies you can use to find positions, and the future of the scientific work force in nontraditional careers. Join us to learn more about exciting and rewarding careers outside of academic/industry research.
