Careers advice for Irish Postdocs - GradIreland Video

As part of the gradireland #FYI video interview series they did one that was a bit different – an interview with Naoimh O’Connor, Research Careers Manager in the UCD Career Development Centre. This excellent 4 minute interview is ‘essential careers advice for postdoctoral researchers’, other postgraduate students, or students considering going down that path. It is really useful content for what we know are a hard-to-reach cohort, and is not institution nor discipline-specific – the focus is on eg transferable skills, and approaches to identifying career pathways for postdocs.

Please take a look, hopefully you’ll agree this is useful; and if so, please share/link on your websites/email to relevant colleagues/use on social media. The link is here:

For those that haven’t visited gradireland for a while, they have an enviable bank of video content for Researchers (and advisers) to view, all in bite-size interviews which can help postdocs think about the myriad career paths open to them – and how to access them. These can all be found here:
