Professional PhD Program and Thrive PhD Academy Online Presentation
28 October @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Peta Baxter and Maud Harshtra will talk about opportunities that we can do during our PhD years. This will occur October the 28th during an online lunch talk.
Peta Baxter’s talk informs PhD’s about what types of internships are possible, where PNN can be of help, and what the different steps are to set it up; including information about the Professional PhD Program (PPP). As it turns out, a lot of PhD candidates are not aware that doing an internship during the PhD trajectory is a possibility. Doing an internship outside of academia during the PhD is an excellent opportunity to explore career opportunities that might otherwise not feel very accessible.
Maud Harshtra will be talking about the THRIVE PhD Academy.It was initiated in 2016 by a group of PhD candidates who expressed a desire to go beyond their own research and boost their societal impact. This entrepreneurial spirit led to the establishment of a community of young and ambitious researchers. The belief that current societal and ecological challenges demand a revision of the role of the academic community forms the basis of the THRIVE PhD Academy. The THRIVE PhD Academy provides PhD candidates the opportunity to obtain these skills and apply them in practice.
