PhD+ Workshop: “Navigating Career Choices Post-PhD – Reflections on Work and Identity”
October 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm | Humanities 1, Room 210
“Navigating Career Choices Post-PhD: Reflections on Work and Identity”
This workshop will provide space to discuss, critique, and engage with some of the thorny questions about transitioning to non-tenure track careers. Kelly Anne Brown, Associate Director of UCHRI, and Shana Melnysyn, Competitive Grants Officer at UCHRI, will share their perspectives as PhDs at work in an Institute that hires many PhDs. We will begin by engaging with a few examples of “quit lit” from across the affective spectrum, and discuss how we might approach them as primary sources in our research on broadening career horizons. We will ask graduate students to come prepared with questions about pursuing different kinds of work–particularly those they wouldn’t feel comfortable asking in other contexts.
