Career Management for Early Career Academic Researchers

Katrina Gardner, The University of Glasgow

Explore different career options and understand what you want from a career

Being an early career academic researcher, whether you’re a doctoral student or research staff, can be challenging: should you pursue further academic research? What skills will help you progress in an academic career? What other career options are open to you?

On this course you will answer these questions and more, considering how to manage you career and reflecting on what you want out of a career. You will be encouraged to consider different career options, both within and outside academic research, and build your confidence in marketing yourself in applications and interviews.

This course is for academic researchers - both postgraduate researchers (PhDs) and early career researchers (post-docs).
