March 5 program from Versatile Ph.D.

From the regional chapter of VPhD:

 

Our next VPhD Western Mass meeting will feature Heidi
Garrett-Peltier (PhD Economics). Heidi is a researcher at the
Political Economy Research Institute who will discuss her own
“alt-ac” career and give advice to those looking at or thinking
about a profession utilizing research skills–skills that are honed
in the process of obtaining a PhD. Note that she is not speaking on
behalf of PERI, but of her own observations and experience.
For those of you who attended Chris Humphrey’s talk, alt-ac would
constitute one of his four quadrants of career opportunities for
PhDs. Research positions, however, can be both within higher
education institutions or outside of them. In fact, many are
somewhere in between.

So if you’re thinking about a post-PhD career using your research
skills, whether you’re in HSS or STEM, come talk to Heidi about what
she sees as important in obtaining this type of position. More
information will follow. Heidi is local, so you can speak to her in
person.

We will meet at the Amherst Room of the Jones Library (upstairs), 43
Amity Street, in downtown Amherst. Time: 6:00 p.m.
