Are you an early career scientist coming to EGU looking for inspiration to take the next step in your career? Are you feeling a little lost with all the opportunities both academic and elsewhere? Then this short course is for you!
Join us for a panel discussion about everything to do with life post-polar-PhD and expand your ideas about where you might go next.

Our five expert panelists come from a wide range of backgrounds, from various stages of academia to applied science, science project management and science journalism. They will give you a little background about their experience and career. Afterwards, we will open the floor to a chaired discussion about all aspects of their careers and it’s over to you! Want to know how to get into a certain career, what experience you might need and what working in a certain career entails – just go ahead and ask!
Come along to listen or participate in what will be a lively and informative discussion. The session is open to anyone at any level in their career. Questions and answers will also be live tweeted!
