Chemistry: CP1 and CP2 - Career options after a PhD Thu 6 May 2021   14:00 In progress

PhD students have plenty of options once you graduate. In this interactive session we will look at the pros and cons of different career options. You will have a chance to think about what you want your work to do for you and what you can offer employers, and you will learn ways to find out more about jobs in which you are interested.
