MGA x PostAC: Explore your post-PhD career options

Wondering about your career options post-PhD? Unsure if you want to be an academic? PostAc is the job search platform you need!

PostAc is a job searching platform which allows users to search a range of research-intensive job ads. PostAc displays only non-academic jobs, enabling you to search for and better understand the market for your skills outside academia.

The platform provides a rich, searchable database of jobs suitable for researchers in a huge range of industries. Each job ad will reveal a wish list from an employer: the content from these ads can reveal what you need to know to be competitive in the job market.

PostAc is an invaluable job search tool that will help graduate research students discover what is possible for your skill set outside academia!
