EMPLOYABILITY WORKSHOP FOR PHILOSOPHY PhD STUDENTS
27-28 MAY 2008, UNIVERSITY OF BIRMINGHAM
This workshop is a collaboration between the British Philosophical Association, the British Postgraduate Philosophy Association, and the University of Birmingham. It is open to Philosophy PhD students in the UK who are interested in pursuing an academic career in Philosophy. The workshop will focus on 'generic' skills that are related to academic employability – for example writing a CV, preparing for a job interview, and presenting and publishing your work.
Thanks to the University of Birmingham Graduate School, most of the places are heavily subsidised (full cost £20 including accommodation), and we also have some money to subsidise travel. Places on the workshop are strictly limited. If it is oversubscribed, the organisers may give preference to applications which (a) arrive the earliest (the final deadline is 25 April) and/or (b) come from students with AHRC funding (since the workshop is funded indirectly by RCUK), and/or (c) come from students in at least the second year of their PhD.
