What do research staff do next?

Vitae, in collaboration with Naturejobs and other partners, are investigating the careers of research staff who moved from research posts in European higher education institutions to other employment sectors.
The aim is to develop a better understanding of how these researchers transition, what careers do they have and their reflections on the transition process and current career paths.

Although some knowledge of the first few years of researchers’ career paths after their doctoral degree has been gained through Vitae’s ‘What do researchers do?’ series, very little is known about subsequent career stages, particularly for those who were initially employed as researchers in higher education. This project will examine how and why early career researchers who have been employed in postdoctoral positions leave higher education and enter other occupations.

If you are interested in this project you can find more information here.
