Career Development Toolkit for Researchers

This practical toolkit is aimed at postdoctoral researchers who have gained one to two years' experience in academic research. It offers some general starting points for those wanting to reflect on their career to date and to begin to formulate an ongoing career strategy.

Aimed at researchers who are considering their overall career progress and development in academia, as well as those contemplating a career change, the toolkit is divided into three main sections:

Section 1 – Stop and take stock

Offering the opportunity for researchers to review their career and experience and to reflect on their career decision-making to this point.

Section 2 – Assessing your academic career progress and planning for the future

Focusing on the key areas of academic career development and offering prompts for career analysis, with suggestions for future actions and tips on how to follow up on these.

Section 3 – Considering alternative career options

Offering encouragement to use the reflections on their experience undertaken in section one to investigate other career options.
