Call for RCUK research career case studies

Call for RCUK research career case studies

As part of its work in promoting careers in research to young people, Research Councils UK (RCUK) has commissioned Isinglass Consultancy to produce short case studies of funded researchers, to be published on the RCUK website and link to appropriate careers websites. It is hoped that these case studies will convey a sense of the diverse nature of research activity, highlight the various careers paths taken and emphasise the personal and professional experiences of working in research.

To help us with this, if you or any of your colleagues are researchers that are/were previously funded by one of the Research Councils whose experience and background would be of interest to young people we would like to hear from you. In the first instance, if you could let me ( know that you would be happy to participate (or the contact details of a colleague that you think would be ideal) and provide a short description of your research. I will contact you/them and if we go ahead then I will send the details for an initial online survey. From this, Isinglass Consultancy will put together a case study. You will have an opportunity to approve the final text.

We are primarily focusing on early career researchers but would also like to demonstrate the breadth of a career as a researcher so this is by no means exclusive. Researchers working outside academia would also be really interesting to profile.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
