At the previous workshop we discussed what skills PhD students should acquire to be employable both in academia and in industry. This workshop builds on this and is targeted at students who are in the middle or in the later stages of their PhDs. How often do you ask yourself - what next? (A lot, we know). Most of us want to continue doing research but with the uncertainty of funding and positions in academia a lot of us are wondering: can I continue my research in industry? What are the differences? The answers are never straightforward but we have yet another great expert - Dr Andrea Kells - to help us. 

Andrea did her PhD in insect behaviour at the University of Southampton but after decided that academia was not for her. She has since worked in university-industry liaison and run an international undergraduate summer school for biology students for a US pharmaceutical company. For the last 2 years she has been the research facilitator in the University’s Computer Laboratory, where one of her jobs is advising PhD students and postdocs on future career pathways, particularly where they are considering academic positions. She will talk about similarities and differences between research careers in and outside of academia and factors that  influence our decisions of which route to take.
