Abstract

Career paths, especially in academia, can seem very linear: we get our PhD, get tenure and work our way up the academic ladder. This webinar will highlight three non-linear career paths in academia. We will demonstrate that career paths in academia can be diverse, ‘non-traditional’ and full of twists and turns. After each speaker has talked about their personal career path, we will split up in break out rooms to share experiences and get inspiration for our own career paths.
