A free online career management course for research students and research staff!

I’m pleased to let you know that a new online course (MOOC) for research students and research staff has recently opened for bookings.  Called Career Management for Early Career Academic Researchers it aims to support researchers to explore their career options and make career plans.

Through a series of articles, videos, discussions, and reflective exercises, researchers will be encouraged to consider what they want out of a career; to explore the academic career path and many other career options; and to increase their confidence in job search and applications.

The MOOC is a collaboration between the University of Glasgow, University of Edinburgh, and University of Sheffield, and has been developed by careers professionals who are experienced in working with research students and research staff.

It’s a free online course and open to research students and early career research staff at any institution in the UK.

The first course will start on 5th March but for more information and sign up details go to:
