We are a small team who are passionate about making it easier for Early Career Researchers to confidently change careers. As a group of PhDs from diverse backgrounds who have all navigated out of academia, we are well versed in the different pressures PhDs face during an academic career.
We were brought together by our shared concern over what we consider to be a major problem at the heart of academic scientific training: too many PhDs are produced for the number of positions available in academia. This means that the majority of those who train for careers in research ultimately end up employed in other sectors, and this transition is often quite challenging.
We are passionate about helping to address this problem, and are working on developing [re]searching into a resource that will be useful for all of its users.
