Season 1 – Finale

Thank you so much for listening to the first season of PassionatePhDs podcast. We have heard stories from a science communicator, data scientist, communication manager, research management officer and a science writer. The career paths of PhD graduates should be much more.

What are your career aspirations? What is your story of passion? I’d love to hear from you. PhD to me is a process, not a destiny. It’s a journey to find our passion. If you want to join me or share your story with the PassionatePhDs podcast, please drop me a line here!

I look forward to hearing your stories! Stay passionate!
