Hi Katia,

For sure you can work in the research Industry with a PhD. However, usually a PhD involves work at University and doing research for University first,. Usually, the research Industry asks for people who have years of experience in the field. However, any experience you can get in the meantime will help you with your CV and the job you want in the future.

Good Luck!

Thank you so much for your answer! That definitely cleared things up for me.
I completely agree with the Dr.Marisol, great suggestion!
