You may be interested to know that a new free MOOC (massive open online course) for research students and research staff has just 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:
“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.”
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.
The first course will start on 5th March 2018. For more information and sign up details go to:
