A new online course (MOOC) for research students and research staff has been developed 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 and beyond. It may be particularly useful for researchers who are unable to access any on campus support offered due to other commitments, or for researchers in institutions that are unable to offer any dedicated careers support to these groups.
The first iteration started on 5th March but a second will be starting June 4th and is now open for bookings.
