Life as a researcher

Graduate researchers are a diverse and inspiring group of people, each following their own pathway to a research degree at the University of Melbourne. Often these individual stories and perspectives influence their choice of PhD topic.

Your research degree will prepare you for a career in research, but it can also lead to many other places. Some of our graduates take research positions in Australia or around the world. Others join the private sector, run their own business, or work for the government or not-for-profit organisations.
