Career Doctor

Provider business unit: Research Training »

ANU Research Skills and Training are eager to support higher degree research (HDR) students nearing the end of their degree to answer the big question: what’s next?

Around 60% of research students now exit the academy when they finish their PhD. We know that ANU graduates have good career outcomes in the long run, but not everyone achieves their dream job of an academic position. In a competitive academic job market, what skills and attributes do academic employers really want from you? The answers might surprise you! If you still want a research career, but need to look outside of the higher education sector to secure employment, what are your options?

Join us at one or more of the ‘ANU career doctor’ sessions to explore your options and broaden your horizons.
