Do you want to engage with a business partner as part of your research?

Are you interested in exploring career opportunities beyond academia?

The PhD Academy is running a research-to-business mentoring scheme which provides a forum for fruitful exchanges about research-business-engagement. The scheme brings together 26 LSE PhD and Early Career Researchers with 15 mentors who work in the private sector and hold PhDs in a range of disciplines. It supports PhD and Early Career Researchers who wish to engage in collaborative research with business partners as part of their PhD or post-doctoral project and/or wish to explore career options in business and industry. Mentors and mentees will meet remotely throughout Michaelmas and Lent Term to discuss how to best bridge the space between academia and business.   

The mentoring scheme is supported by the ESRC Accelerating Business Collaboration (ABC) grant. 

Applications for the 2020/21 academic year have closed. 

If you have missed the current application cycle but are interested in the scheme or have questions about it, please send an email with the subject heading “ABC Mentoring” to the PhD Academy.
