Upcoming 2015 Panel Discussions

Careers in Technology for Humanities and Social Science PhDs (January 26-30; H/SS forum)

Let’s kill the cliche that humanists and social scientists don’t or can’t have careers in technology. This panel discussion will present a good group of H/SS PhDs who have bootstrapped their way into technology careers, and now play diverse technology-centered roles in a wide variety of organizations.

 

Careers in Informal Science Education (February 23-27; STEM forum)

Museums and other nonprofits (nature preserves, zoos, etc.) are key sites where science education takes place. Many STEM PhDs have entered this stimulating and rewarding field. The February panel will showcase a nice group of them doing informal science ed in a variety of settings.

 

Careers in Marketing for STEM PhDs (June 8-12; STEM forum)

Products and services that have science at their core need to be marketed with the help of scientists to make sure the science is right and the best possible story is being told. This discussion will feature STEM PhDs who have gone into Marketing, using their science knowledge to help educate customers truthfully about products and services that are science-based.
