Career prospects

Many PhD scholars trained at Liverpool in the methods and ideas of functional and comparative genomics research have gone on to post-doctoral research, and to develop careers in academia as tenured academic staff in the UK, USA and other countries. Scientific researcher and advisory posts within government and health services organisations have also provided rewarding careers.  Others have taken their skills into industry in the biomedical and biotechnology sectors with careers in both small start-up companies and large multi-national corporations.  The research and personal skills developed during doctoral research are also valuable in a very wide range of professional careers.
