The Inside Track Seminar on Career Options for Research Postgraduates

20 March 2014, 1.00 PM - 20 March 2014, 1.00 PM

This session brings together a small panel to offer their personal experience of the value in completing postgraduate research before entering their current profession and the different routes available after completing a PhD in an Engineering or related field.
The panel will consist of Simon McIntosh-Smith (Head of Microelectronics Group and University of Bristol Business Fellow, Department of Computer Science), Rhodri Watkins (Frazer-Nash Consultancy) and Matteo Bianchi (Rolls-Royce). They will offer an insight into some of the different areas in which research can be undertaken, including academia and industry, as well as the option of embarking on a new and unrelated career.

Whether you are a postgraduate looking for ideas about future career plans, or an undergraduate interested in where a PhD can take you, this should be a fascinating seminar.

Aside from the panel, Dr Samantha Cathro, the University’s Postgraduate Careers Adviser will also attend this seminar to answer any questions.

Time - 1-2pm

Location - Room 1.8 (Queen’s Building)

The Inside Track Seminar series is an informal forum aimed at students to provide a regular opportunity to discuss in an open forum any industry or careers related issues you have. Each week will have a theme, but there will also be the opportunity to bring any other questions you have (e.g. about CVs, job applications, types of industry, internships etc.). Members of staff from the Careers Service and Industrial Liaison Office will be at each session, and each week we will invite relevant guests from industry.
