RCUK’s research career case study resource

RCUKlogoRCUK has published further research career case studies, designed to inspire the next generation to think about pursuing a career in research.

Each case study tells their own personal story of how they got involved in research, what it takes to be a researcher, and their rewarding experiences from their chosen career paths. The RCUK resource now contains 44 case studies in total, covering a wide range of disciplines including arts and humanities; maths; biology; social sciences; and physics. 

RCUK believes that inspiring the next generation to consider the value of a career in research is vital to ensure that the UK maintains its world-leading position, providing critical contributions to the economy and the pressing challenges facing society.

New case studies will continue to be added to the site to promote the wide variety of careers available in research as well as demonstrating the multitude of routes to those careers that young people can pursue.  Anyone with an interesting research career story can be considered as a case study by emailing communications@rcuk.ac.uk.
