SC3.12 ECS
Academia is not the only route: exploring career options for Earth scientists
Convener: Hazel Gibson | Co-convener: Bárbara Ferreira
Thu, 11 Apr, 10:45–12:30
Room -2.16

While many enjoy working in an academic environment, scientific skills are valued in other job sectors and an increasing number of scientists pursue careers outside of academia. However, navigating different job opportunities and transitioning to new career paths can be difficult, especially for researchers who are not given enough opportunities to develop their transferable skills. In this workshop, a repeat of the popular 2018 course, a panel of current and former geoscientists will share their experiences and discuss career opportunities for Earth, space and planetary scientists both inside and outside academia. Following short presentations by each panelist, there will be a question and answer session with the audience.
