Academic Stories Career Pathways

Showcasing the diversity of pathways towards and through a career in academia.

Read the stories of twelve people at different stages of their careers, who have taken a variety of routes to get to where they are now, valuing and focusing on different things along the way.

Each profile contains a video interview and a timeline detailing educational milestones including institutional moves, publications, conferences and talks, teaching commitments and outreach activities. The timelines are by no means exhaustive, they merely represent a selection of the activities and achievements of each individual over the course of their career.

By identifying with their struggles and successes, we hope you are able to take inspiration and encouragement from their stories.
