Postdoctoral scholars are highly skilled researchers with the potential to take up careers in a range of different sectors. The move from academia to industry can come with certain challenges, however, and key to achieving success is the ability to transfer, translate and apply the skills gained as a graduate researcher to new contexts. In this panel session, you will hear from PhD graduates from different disciplines with established careers as industry professionals. The panellists will talk about their trajectory from the PhD to the workplace and discuss how completing a PhD contributed to preparing them for careers beyond the University.
