Academic career stories at University of Edinburgh

Academic career stories at University of Edinburgh

The Careers Service and the Institute for Academic Development (IAD) have developed a new resource to showcase the academic career journey from PhD student to group leader or head of institute. You’ll find it useful if you’re interested in developing an academic career after your PhD.

The resource is a collection of video case studies from individuals at the University of Edinburgh who are at different stages of the academic career journey and across a range of disciplines. The case studies show the challenges and rewards of an academic career, and the personal qualities and experiences that can be influential in helping individuals to progress an academic career. In addition, the videos demonstrate the type of support provided by PhD supervisors, research group leaders, and other academic colleagues that has helped the individuals progress their academic career.
