In view of the mounting challenges facing early career academics after the PhD, Dr Derek Dunne (Cardiff University) and Dr Toria Johnson (University of Birmingham) have compiled this online survival guide.
The guide includes a range of resources, useful for those who are working towards as well as having completed the PhD. These include:
- Updates on conferences and workshops that are concerned with early career issues
- Podcasts on the experiences of postdoc researchers
- Blogs on higher education policy, especially as it relates to early career academics
- Links to other ECR-related resources
Please take note of the Early Career Academic summit, details of which can be found here. This two-day event will include keynotes and workshops from academics and postdocs who are at the cutting-edge of addressing and working through challenges to ECRs. The PGR Studio will bring you more on this in due course.
