PhD Network

Learning and discovery extend beyond the classroom and lab. To make the most of your graduate school experience, explore the activities and events sponsored by Northeastern.

Based on student feedback, events include professional development workshops, career events, networking opportunities with fellow students and prospective employers, introductions to university resources and support, and research events.

Some events are offered specifically for PhD students, as noted in the event title or description. Many events include postdocs and faculty, offering a great way for students to network and learn from others.

Select opportunities offered beyond Northeastern’s campuses are also listed on the calendar. These events are aligned with our students’ professional and academic development. Upcoming events are listed below. Visit the calendar for a full listing.
