About Us

Beyond the PhD or formally known as Academia-Industry Opportunities Group (AIOG) is a student-led group that support peer-professional networking and career development in STEM. Founded in 2018 by Dr. Robert Pijewski and Dr. Giulia Vigone, at the time graduate student and postdoctoral fellows, they wanted to learn about their career options and address a need among their peers to find jobs outside of academia.

In the past, the academic career path was conventional for individuals pursuing graduate education in science however given the number of professorships available more PhDs are considering alternative careers outside academic institutions. The mission of AIOG is to provide opportunities for upper level undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral fellows to meet and communicate with scientific professionals in both academic and nonacademic careers.
