Are you changing jobs? We want to know about it – share your story with #ScientistOnTheMove
Mobility within scientific research is valuable. The experience of working in different institutions, companies and even countries can be beneficial in many ways. The skills that you learn in each job, whether technical or otherwise, help you develop as a scientist and a person.
At Naturejobs we celebrate these changes and transitions. We’ve spoken to Nessa Carey, currently the International Director at PraxisUnico, about her move from academia into industry, David Carr about his leap from academia into policy, to Martine Bernstein about her transition from academia to a start-up after finishing her degree, amongst others. Many of you have been in touch asking if we could feature more job transition stories.
We want to fulfil your requests, but we need your help. We want to share your transition stories: let us know if you’ve got a new job! Tweet your new job with the hashtag #ScientistOnTheMove, and once a month we will select a few people to profile on the Naturejobs blog, sharing their personal transitional stories and hopes for the new role.
We want you to get involved! Let us know if you’ve changed labs, moved institutions, become a professor, transitioned to another discipline or made any move that qualifies as a new job.
