I’m a Ph.D. in neuroscience who made the transition from academic postdoc to business professional at a biotechnology startup. Having seen what it takes to get hired and accelerate professional advancement outside of academia, our Advisors and I are passionate about reaching back to empower more PhDs, researchers and scientists to get out into society.
Advisors with Free the PhD are all PhD trained researchers who are now professionally employed outside academia. They donate time and energy to work with PhD job hunters on their careers and professional growth.
We also work with university and institutional career and professional development centers, graduate student councils, postdoc groups and other partners advancing the career preparedness of our research trainees and colleagues.
