Careers day held for PhD and Post Doctoral researchers

The Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA) Graduate School held a careers event on 15th of May at Glasgow Science Centre. The aim of the event was to allow PhD students and Post Doctoral researchers to engage with early career researchers who have made the transition from academia to industry. At the event, the speakers briefly introduced themselves before participating in round table discussions. The speakers came from a wide variety of companies to show the range of opportunities which are available to physicists.

Several companies and organisations, including the IOP, were represented with stands with further information about careers. There was also a CV clinic led by the IOP Careers Manager Vishanti Fox, supported by university careers specialists. Participants had a chance to talk further with the early career researchers over a buffet lunch. This was a great opportunity find out what work life is like outwith university and the attendees made the most of this chance.
