RCUK has published further research career case studies, designed to inspire young people 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.
There are now 75 case studies in total, covering a wide range of disciplines including arts and humanities; maths; biology; social sciences; and physics. The case studies highlight the opportunities research skills can give, not only in academia but also in the wider world of business, industry and commerce.
Featured researchers from the University of Manchester include:
- David Topping
- Nicholas Harrigan
- Hywel Owen
- Justyna Janiec-Anwar
- Rishma Vidyasagar
- Chris Boyce
- Gillian Mawson
