Focus on Moving On and Up for Research Staff

We are currently focusing on activities for research staff (post-doctoral researchers and research fellows in higher education). 

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.         George Bernard Shaw

Our theme is ‘moving on and moving up’, which includes moving in varied career directions, as well as the transition from postdoc to achieving a level of academic independence, and creating and seizing opportunities for progression and independence.

You will need to be registered to our website with your university address to access some of our content.
