This session will encourage participants to think more broadly about the sorts of career paths they might seek, and also to view the skills they learn in doing a PhD in a different light. In this seminar you will hear from four speakers with PhDs who have extensive experience working both within and outside of academia. They will share their experiences of managing projects in professional contexts ranging from small NGOs to international consultancies. Panellists will discuss what ‘projects’ are, what skills and tools may be used in managing projects, and how to learn, apply and communicate this experience to potential employers. This seminar is relevant to graduate researchers at all stages of candidature.

Presenters include:
Svenja Keele, Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Resilient Cities at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute.

Dr Gwilym Croucher, Senior Lecturer in the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education (CSHE)

Natalie Gunn, Senior Manager of the Health and Life Sciences team in the Australia research lab.

Gerard Healey, Manager, Sustainable Campus Design at the University of Melbourne.
