This event will be a friendly opportunity for doctoral students to think about working in academia after they finish their PhDs. We will hear briefly from three speakers: Dr. Rana Khazbak, Dr. Billy Holzberg, and Dr. Amy Seakins before we open for general discussion and Q&A about academia after the PhD.
You don’t have to be certain you want to stay in academia to attend (lol, is anyone), but the aim is to give us a chance to honestly chat about the options post-PhD and the experiences of peers who have made the transition out of their PhDs and into academic or non-academic posts in universities.
While Rana and Billy currently hold academic posts at King’s, Amy, who previously completed her PhD at King’s and worked as a Research Associate for some time has now moved into the role of Deputy Head of Public Engagement at Imperial.
Refreshments (alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and some snacks) will be provided, so please only sign up for an in person ticket if you are able to come.
