The ‘What do research staff do next?’ project run by Vitae in collaboration with Naturejobs is investigating the careers of researchers who used to be employed as research staff in UK or European universities, but have since moved on to other employment sectors.

One of the challenges of this project is contacting former higher education researchers. If you know of any research staff who have moved out of a UK /European university or public research institute, please tell them about this project and encourage them to complete the survey.

Forward the link to the survey ( to former HE research staff and encourage them to share their #postacstory on Twitter!
