Saturday, April 18th, 2020

UPDATE AS OF 3/12/2020: This event has been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak. We apologize for the inconvenience and plan to reimburse registration fees in the coming weeks. 

On behalf of the Postdoctoral Association of UC San Diego (PDA) and our sponsors, we would like to invite you to our Seventh Annual “What Can You Be with a PhD?” STEM Career Symposium! This unique event is designed to help you, future innovators and leaders, explore a wide range of career opportunities, including those outside the traditional academic career track. 

The creators of this Symposium share the same career questions and dilemmas and have worked to address these questions by bringing resources directly to our community. This one-day event will feature a variety of career paths from both public and private sectors. Importantly, in our interactive panel discussions, you will have the opportunity to network with professionals who have successfully transitioned outside of academia. We hope you will take advantage of what the Symposium offers as you progress in your career search and discover your full potential!

Registration starts on March 1st at 5pm (PST). Register by March 20th to obtain the Early Bird Discounted Price!

All registration will close on April 10th at 5 pm (PST). There will be no onsite registration available.
