Pathways, our biggest PhD and research staff career options event, is coming up in June, so put the date in your diaries. Last year we had over 100 alumni and external speakers come to Manchester to share their experiences on how they have used their PhDs in careers both in and outside academia. We’re giving you advanced warning of the dates so that if you have any ideas of career paths you would like to hear about let us know and we will try our best to find someone. Also if you know any researchers that have left academic life and are perusing alternative careers (and are free on the 12th June) please let me know. You can contact us  by adding a comment below.
