PhD Career Stories

Many of our PhD Career Stories series this year will be virtual, offered via Zoom! Be sure to register for the sessions you wish to attend by midnight the Thursday before in order to receive the Zoom login information.

PhD Career Stories is a monthly seminar series about career options for PhD scientists. Speakers from a diverse range of exciting scientific careers present their career path and share insights from their professional experiences. Come hear about the career journey from Vanderbilt Alumni and professionals working in the field, and see if this is a career path that could suit you.

The series is sponsored by the BRET Office of Career Development.

For more information on the series, to suggest a speaker, or to become a member of the PhD Career Stories Planning Committee, please contact Angela Zito
