Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder

Getting to Know the Faces of Industry

So you are doing a PhD or working on a postdoc. Are you unsure about what you want to do after? Are you debating industry vs. academia? Working at a university provides a lot of experience in the academic world, but what do you really know about the opportunities in industry?

This CIRES Graduate Association event is designed to connect students and post-docs to professionals working in all sectors of industry. “Virtually” come and talk with a few professionals who know what you are going through. They can identify with the graduate school process and talk about differences between academia and industry.

Join us next week on Tuesday, October 20th from 4-5:30 pm and learn about all the different kinds of opportunities that are outside of academia or even adjacent to academia.

Speakers joining us for this event are:

Dr. Ian Miller— Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Director of Earth and Space Sciences, Associate Curator of Paleobotany

Dr. Erika Schreiber— UNAVCO, Polar Engineer II

Dr. Katy Human— Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, Director of Communications
