Discuss Research Life

We talk to the academic researchers working in universities and labs all over the world, hear their career stories and the advice they have for the next generation, and get a peek into the cutting edge research to come.

Academia can be a challenging career, but with challenge comes opportunity. This could be the chance to live and work in another country, the opportunity to visit a research lab doing exciting things, or simply to attend a conference and get to chat with researchers whose work you’ve read, exchange ideas and maybe even work together some day. Everyone’s journey through academia is different, taking them to different countries, universities, labs and even different types of job. We’ll talk with people at all stages of academic careers, including those who’ve come back into academia after working in different industries, and we’ll get their insight into how the system works, as well as their opinions as to what the most exciting new research topics are and how to get started working on them.
