What do I do with my academic degree?

Source: washington.edu


The site "Beyond the doctorate" hosted by the University of Neuchatel is designed to help those who are reaching the end of their doctorate, or have already completed it, and are seeking information concerning possibilities of pursuing their research career, wondering about the conditions regarding this choice and/or would like tips regarding possible alternative paths. If you are envisioning an academic career in particular, you might want to have a look at the brochure "Guide pratique de la relève académique" published by the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of UNIL (in French only for the moment).
