Beschreibung

At some point, most PhDs wonder whether to continue in academia or leave for a job in an industry. More money, time or impact: Motives will vary, and will be equally valid.

19 March 2018, 17:00, Heidelberg, Kurfürstenanlage 60 (11th floor)

In this free workshop, we will discuss: How do I handle change and continuity in my career? When do I leave for the industry? What mistakes must I avoid? Which destination do I pick?

Secondly, we look at opportunities in Data Science and Machine Learning, the fastest growing job market for the very highly qualified.

Above all, each participant will be able to customize a roadmap for a successful transition to the first position in Data Science, Machine Learning or AI - a journey that will take 6 to 9 months.

Target Audience/Workshop Participants

Any Ph.D. with a numerate background - in e.g. statistics, algebra, econometrics - from any research field that is curious about the opportunities in industry or is wondering whether an academic career is a best or only choice. We understand Ph.D. as you are a Ph.D. researcher or Postdoc.

Proof-of-concept

The workshop concept was piloted for the "Max Planck Symposium for Alumni and Early Career Researchers" (Berlin 2017) and is based on hundreds of applications and interviews at Data Science Retreat as well as participants' biographies. In 2018 the workshop has been held successfully in Göttingen, Bonn, and Cologne.

Thank you to the Max Planck PhDs and postdocs that have supported this workshop series.
