Think career: career course for PhDs studying at the Department of Mathematics
The course focuses on raising awareness about and mapping your competency. Recently graduated PhD students will also share experiences of their own career paths.
The Department of Mathematics has the pleasure of inviting you to the second career course customised for the PhDs from our Department.
To start you off thinking about your career as early as possible, we think that this course is best suited for PhDs at their 1st and 2nd year of studies, but others are also welcome to join.
The schedule is only a suggestion - the exact time for each activity will depend on how the day develops. We suggest that you try to make time to take part in the whole programme.
