The Institute of Physics and SEPnet will run a joint career networking event for physicist students and postdocs. This event will give an insight into the broad range of career paths open to physics graduates including PhD graduates.

This event aims to help, inspire and motivate you to explore the careers options open to you in a welcoming and friendly environment.

The event will begin with a short career and networking activity followed by a panel session where you will hear from physics and PhD graduates from physics-related fields who have gone on to pursue interesting and successful careers in diverse areas, both in and outside academia.

You will then have time to question our panellists in small groups and to network informally with them and other participants over refreshments.

What past attendees said about the last career networking event:

It was a fresh and exciting look into my career options, which is something I consider extremely important.

I enjoyed the networking workshop, helped make networking less of an effort and the roundtable session with panellists was great!

Nice to have some time with the panellists on the table. More informative than just talks with Q&A. Very enjoyable.
