Academic careers


Our website, An Academic Career, has now been retired.

This was an award-winning website, developed by the Careers Service in collaboration with a wide range of University of Manchester academics and researchers. However, the last 10+ years have seen many changes in university practices, in technology and in currently available career resources, and it is now time to move on.

We are currently working on creating new resources to support our doctoral researchers who are considering an academic career. In partnership with some of our current doctoral researchers, we will be developing new content and where appropriate, repurposing some of the content from An Academic Career.

In the interim, current or recent (ie. graduated within the last 2 years) University of Manchester students or doctoral researchers can continue to get individual support, covering academic and non-academic careers, through our careers appointment system.
