Early career scientists tell us they have worries about the future
- I want to make career progress, but my peers who have left academia are gaining more transferable skills
- I want to have enough income to cover the basics and live in comfort, but financial security is on my mind
- I'm deeply passionate about my subject area, but academia doesn’t deliver the impact I thought it would
- I’d like to continue on my current path, but securing a career in academia and future funding is daunting
- I’d like to more fully understand the job market, but I don’t know what else I could excel at or is available to me
Real impact, as part of a thriving community
Balancing projects from Outsmart Insight alongside my science PhD has helped me to learn how transferable my skills are and develop them further. The varied projects make me think, write about and research big-picture developments. A refreshing contrast to the day-to-day research activities.
