Today, the Vitae website starts a week of articles on “Researcher Careers and Recession“. Not sure who’s lined up for the rest of the week (yes, I’ve submitted mine – let’s see if it makes the cut) but it kicks off with Fiona Christie, now Careers Co-ordinator for Postgraduate Researchers at the University of Salford, but late of this parish.
Fiona and I worked together here at the Careers Service for many years, but we still see each other regularly as we collaborate on postgrad work. Unsurprising then that I can heartily agree with her comments – have a look here.
In fact, there’s so much agreement, that we’ve covered some of the same ground in our articles… Ah well, first to publication wins, as all you researchers know!
