Dr Richard Huysmans is driven by the challenge of building outstanding careers beyond the PhD. He knows what it takes to transition out of academia, into entrepreneurship, having done so himself. He has also helped 100s of PhD students and researchers, so is equally adept at building grant success, growing collaboration, engaging industry and obtaining funding. He works with PhD students and researchers and entrepreneurs in roles such as Education or Research Manager, Centre and Institute Director, Deputy and Pro Vice-Chancellor of Research and Faculty Manager.
Building better careers – How PhD programs are sustaining long-term individual and organisational success
Workshop, Monday 14 May, 1430–1600
- Ever wondered what CRCs and other organisations are doing to support their PhD students?
- What about if what you are doing is having an impact?
- Got the impression there is probably an easier way to support your PhD students?
In this practical workshop, Dr Richard Huysmans will present findings from his brief research into the PhD offerings from CRCs and similar organisations. He will present case reports on student experience and CRC feedback. There will be opportunities to discuss your experiences in the context of other organisations and student needs. If you’re the education or student manager for your organisation – this is not to be missed!
