Are you trying to figure out the next step in your research career? Are you wondering if academia really is your ideal career? Are you looking for research career opportunities but can’t seem to find the right ‘fit’? I offer affordable online mentoring sessions for people just like you.
I was an academic for 18 years in the UK and Ireland (PhD, Post-doc, Lecturer and Senior Research Fellow). I had a permanent post, my own research grants, a good publication record, great students and I loved my job. Then I began to realise that the academic career I felt fortunate to have secured was not the only thing I wanted to pursue; there were other things that I wanted to do but I just didn’t have the time.
I took some time to explore my options. I used my experience of working with a social research company and I have now established Research Your Way (along with some other ventures!). I love the variety of my new career and the work-life balance it gives me. If my experience resonates with you then I would love to help you work out the next steps in your career.
I have a huge amount of knowledge about all the different aspects of developing a research career both within and beyond academia that I would love to share with you. Click below to get in touch with me for a chat about how I can help you.
