Non-Faculty Careers in Academia for Science and Engineering PhDs

Thursday, March 10, 2016
9:30 am to 10:30 am

Teaching and academic research aren't the only career opportunities at colleges and universities. PhDs are employed in departmental administration, proposal development, science education, student affairs, and career services, to name just a few options. If you have a PhD in the sciences or engineering, this panel will provide a wealth of information about academic career paths you may not have considered.
