Magnifying the career path after PhD

Le S

Olympus Australia and New Zealand.

Upon receiving my PhD, I dived into my postdoc life. Driven by my passion about microscopy and uncontrolled external factors, I joined Olympus to pursue a career outside academia. I am passionate about leveraging my expertise and company resources to provide the best solution of advanced microscopy to support research in life science. A career path of a PhD graduate is always deemed narrow, which is completely untrue. I would like to discuss the necessary preparation, practical steps and strategies that worked for me to transition from academic role into a position in life science related industry.
