The Careers Service is able to provide career development support for academic research-only staff and early career academic teaching staff.
Academic research-only staff includes research assistants and associates, post-docs, and research fellows; and early career academic teaching staff includes teaching assistants and teaching fellows. This does not include academic staff on open-ended lecturing contracts.
Although you are a member of research staff you may find the resources on the PhD student section of our website of use. They give an overview of career options after a research degree, including information about how to develop an academic career, and how to generate and research other career ideas. There are video case studies from academic staff at the University giving tips on how to develop an academic career, and advice on both academic and non-academic applications and interviews.
