Navigating Professional Careers

What might your career path be after completing your PhD?

We hope the career paths of participants in our study will provide you with some sense of the range of post-PhD possibilities as well as the shifts that occurred over time in the jobs they took on. Each participant’s timeline distinguishes three themes: personal/life experiences, PhD and work-related experiences, and career thinking. You can read both a) across the themes to understand concurrent experiences and/or b) downwards within a theme to see changes that occurred. At the bottom of each themed timeline is a list of the participant experiences we thought were important and a link to resources related to the theme.
