We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took our careers survey and helped to spread the word on this important initiative for the British Society for Immunology. Congratulations are due to Nick Smithers who was the winner of our prize draw.
In total, we received 1,313 responses, 50% from current members and 50% from lapsed or non-members. This is a fantastic response and will allow us to gain a good insight into the career progression of immunologists, both past and present. We are currently analysing your responses and we hope to publish the results in the autumn.
This survey is part of a larger piece of work we are undertaking to examine the overall landscape for immunology careers, looking at the career paths chosen by immunologists and the barriers they face. Through gaining this insight into the immunology workforce, we hope to better understand the challenges you face and to make recommendations for how we can provide targeted career support and advice to immunologists at all stages of their careers.
Our careers review report is due to be published in late autumn and we look forward to bringing you more news on the findings soon. In the meantime, if you would like to find out more background information, please visit the project information page.
