I finished my phd on 2017 , nearly a year and half. Since then, i have not had chance to do any project research for some circumstances. As my job asked me to apply for poster or presentation in a conference, due to career obligation, i have thought to do poster from my phd thesis, my question is that possible to do ?

  • If you elaborate on since it was published in university library[,] it would have been hard do any thing from it, then I'll try to elaborate.

Yes, you can. Colin Purrington has some extremely good advice on how to go about it. There are even templates you can use.

Edit: You've added that your thesis was published in a university library. That's OK. It is your work, so you are allowed to present it in a different form. Your poster is going to summarize the problem you tackled and showcase the relevant results. You shouldn't try to present the entire thesis as a poster; only the very most important parts..
