Academic Careers Office

The mission of the Academic Careers Office (ACO) is to promote, support and develop all aspects of academic and clinical academic careers in the School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS).

WORKING IN A CRISIS

The ACO have created a new online hub that is dedicated to providing resources to help everyone cope with working remotely during the current global situation. It is packed full of suggestions on how to stay motivated, protect your mental wellbeing and manage a work/life balance. 

ACADEMICS NEED TO TALK

ANT is a brand new global initiative designed to keep academics and researchers in contact with each other during these tumultuous times. It is free and open to all regardless of instituion, location, career stage or discipline. 

ADAPT GROUP COACHING

This is a new opportunity to help IAT trainees (ACLs AND CLs), clinical PhD students and foundation doctors cope with anxieties and challenges during the pandemic. It’s free and participants will get support from a coach via online sessions together with their peers. 

ADAPT COPING RESOURCES

We have partnered with Dr Sue Watson to create videos that will give you some coping strategies during this difficult time. 

RETURNING TO RESEARCH WEBINARS

These webinars were arranged to help support clinical academic staff who are returning to research after being released to work within the NHS during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Our focus is on developing people in order to transform society and deliver extraordinary improvements in human health and well-being. We provide training, support and mentorship to clinicians and researchers in the School of Life and Medical Sciences.
