Register today to attend a free workshopWe're running a free workshop on Tuesday, 18 March (9am - Midday) exploring strategies and tools to help PhD candidates and early career researchers imagine and build alternative academic careers.
What is an 'alternative academic' career?#Altac careers have been described as off the tenure track, but within the academic orbit. These positions are serviced by “hybrid humanities scholars” who work in a diverse range of institutions including universities, cultural heritage bodies, libraries, museums, academic publishing, and the public sector. Roles often include a combination of administration, project management, teaching and research work.
About the workshopThe workshop will include a panel session with several practicing “alt-academics”, hands-on activities and plenty of lively discussion and debate.
We’ll be asking questions such as:
- How can PhD students better locate their research and work in an employable context?
- How can PhD students prepare for alternative academic careers during and after their candidature?
- What are the main opportunities and challenges associated with alternative academic careers?
Who should attend this workshop?Postgraduate students and early career researchers.
