Please note that the Social Sciences PhD Careers Day has been postponed due to the UCU strike action that is currently taking place. We are working to identify an alternative date and will publish details once new arrangements have been confirmed.

Life Beyond your Doctorate is a great opportunity for you to explore a variety of post-doctoral career options and prepare for your next steps.

Hear from a range of Social Science PhD alumni and find out about the range of careers they have moved into in the public and private sectors, as well as academia.

We'll also have workshops to help you identify your own career mentor and to show you some useful tricks and tips you can use to explore what options might be out there for you post-PhD.

Speakers include

  • Dr Ivan Farias (PhD Political Science & International Studies): Junior Data Analyst at Accenture
  • Dr Vita Terry (PhD Social Policy): Senior Researcher, Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR)
  • Dr Daniel Rio Tinto (PhD Political Science & International Studies): Consulting at Accenture (Warsaw)
  • Dr Wei Wu (PhD Management): Director at WeiPoint
  • Dr Shardia Briscoe-Palmer (PhD Political Science & International Studies): Early Career Academic Fellow at De Montfort University

  • Hear from PhD alumni who have moved into a range of sectors within and beyond academia
  • Understand more about career options open to social science PhDs
  • Expand your network and learn how to find yourself a career mentor


We try to make all our events accessible; however, we are aware that this is not always the case. If you have additional requirements or concerns about accessing a workshop, please contact Careers Network and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
