ESRC Festival of Social Science 2012

A Career in Science?

Are you interested in a career in science but unsure of the career options available?  Do you want to learn more about the opportunities available to science graduates?

The University of Birmingham is hosting an interactive workshop discussing the diversity of careers open to scientists and the different types of challenges that scientists face at various stages throughout their profession.

Based on research conducted by academics at the University of Birmingham, results show that there is a greater need for information for those who are questioning whether to study a scientific subject at university. Many participants in the research stated that their perceptions of scientific careers often developed as a result of opinions from family, friends and popular culture as well as formal careers advice. As a result, it would be greatly beneficial to provide more information on the types of careers science graduates embark on, to those debating whether they wish to study science at university.

By attending this interactive workshop, you will get an overview of the kinds of activities 'real' scientists get involved in, participate in a variety of interactive workshops and learn about the diverse career options available to science graduates. Whatever your interest in science, you will learn that a career in science is a doorway to many wonderful opportunities.
