AHA Skills for New Historians Seminar
16 July 2021, 4—6pm AEST (via Zoom)
While getting a job outside of the academy has never been a sign of failure, it’s becoming increasingly common (and necessary) to move from the PhD or the postdoctoral fellowship to different kinds of work. But this doesn’t have to mean giving up on research, publishing, or keeping in touch with your academic community. It also doesn’t mean forgetting all the skills you developed and honed during your PhD. This month, then, we’re focusing on work outside of – or, perhaps, alongside – the academy, and speaking to people who have successfully secured these kinds of positions in three different fields: university administration, the public service, and the GLAM sector. These recent grads will tell us all about their work in these fields, how they secured their positions, and how they balance continuing to publish and engage with their academic communities:
- Dr Emma Gleadhill, Faculty of Arts Research Officer at Macquarie University;
- Dr Emma Sarian, NSW State Insurance Regulatory Authority, and;
- Dr Mariko Smith, First Nations Assistant Curator at the Australian Museum
Registrations close 15 July 2021, more details here.
