Interested in a career in science but are unsure about what your next step is, which direction to take or what is right for you? This video collection can help you find out more about scientific careers.
PhD Inspiration with FindAPhD.comIn 2017/18 we worked with FindAPhD.com to produce a series of videos featuring scientists from the Institute and the Campus reflecting on their PhD experiences. Our goal is to raise awareness of the shared and unique challenges each person's journey to help more people find the right career paths for them.
These videos form part of a larger collection by the FindAPhD team where they've spoken to a range of people with PhDs about their time as graduate students. FindAPhD exists to help people understand what a PhD involves, to explore if it's the right choice for them and to help them find a research project that suits their interests. You can find the full collection, transcripts of the videos and other information about PhDs on the FindAPhD blog.
If you are interested in taking up a PhD at the Babraham Institute please visit the Institute’s Studentships page which includes a list of opportunities as well as information about university affiliation, funding and how to apply.
Discover your career in scienceYou can find out more about the wide range of possible careers in science from our series of videos in which our scientists explain why they love their job, what they do on a daily basis, what inspires them, what got them into a science career in the first place and what their next steps will be.
While the ‘standard’ academic career path tends to start with a university degree, followed by three or four years doing a PhD and then postdoctoral research, there are a range of research-related careers branching out from each of these stages. This series of videos features scientists from the Babraham Institute and campus companies at different stages of their career, including the academic career track, those working in industry and in scientific support.
