As unbelievable it sometimes seems, our life does not end on the day we get our PhDs, it’s quite the opposite really- we’re starting our careers! Sometimes it’s difficult to say what your next step will be – as PhD experience gives us so much that you can be almost anything! If you’re lost or a little unsure about what you want to do after PhD, the best way to find out is to ask around and that’s exactly what we’re doing!
We’ve talked to Joe Dwyer, he did his PhD with Elisabeth Ehler at the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics and Cardiovascular Division, where he looked at the role of FHOD1 in the heart. After his PhD, Joe worked in the pharmaceutical market research, but then he followed his heart (pun intended) and now he’s a yoga teacher!
