Research Careers Series 5

Research Careers Series 5 is a series of workshops designed specifically with the needs and experiences of research-active staff in mind. The workshops aim to help you to take the time to reflect on your career and make decisions about your next steps in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.

Researchers come to academia with a strong sense of vocation, and when you’re under pressure, or find yourself at a crossroads in your career, it can be daunting to make important decisions. You may have been mulling over your options for years, or now have to think carefully now because your contract is ending.

Wherever you are in your research career, and regardless of aspiration, this series of workshops will give you valuable time and space to pause and reflect upon the choices available to you.

You will work with an experienced career coach in a small group of supportive peers, so you can approach your career planning calmly and confidently.

You can attend as many or as few sessions as you like, depending on your needs and commitments. Each session last 2.5 hours and take place via Microsoft Teams.
