Tailored careers support is available for Research Postgraduates and Research Staff. On these pages we offer specialist careers information and advice for researchers, including information on the potential career paths open to you and advice on successful marketing strategies to help you achieve your aims. Research staff can access 1:1 confidential careers guidance from the Researcher Career Development Adviser, Anne Cameron. Research postgraduates can access the careers guidance and drop-in service provided by all careers advisers.
Career management sessions for researchers, on topics such as academic careers and marketing your research skills, as run as part of the University's Researcher Development programme. If you have any suggestions for careers-related workshops that are not already offered, please contact Anne Cameron.
Thinking strageically about your career (just as you would about a new research project) can help you avoid making rushed decisions or 'drifting' into a career path that isn't right for you. The career planning cycle shows how how to go about planning your next steps and achieving your aims.
Whether your desired career is here at the University of Bath or elsewhere, in your current field or something different, we are committed to giving you impartial and independent support and advice. We hope you find these pages useful and informative (and that if you don't, you'll tell us!), and that they inspire you to take more control over your career.
