OZSW Workshop “Career perspectives for Philosophy PhD students and Postdocs”
1 October 2015 @ 12:30 - 18:00| free
On October 1, the Leiden Institute for Philosophy in collaboration with the PhD Council of the OZSW organizes a gathering dedicated to the topic of employment opportunities for philosophy PhDs and Postdocs in the Netherlands.
A PhD in philosophy is not an automatic guarantee for a job in academia. Many philosophy PhDs and even Postdocs (have to) find a career outside of the university. This raises all kinds of questions. How many of us leave academia? Are they successful in their careers? What can PhDs do during their studies to prepare for a career outside of academia? What useful skills does a doctorate in philosophy bring? What should supervisors do to prepare their PhD students? These and other questions will be discussed in this workshop. In addition, there will be practical sessions dedicated to what both PhDs and supervisors can do in practical terms to prepare students for a career outside of the profession.
