Document Abstract

Royal Society research fellowships: career pathway tracker

Reports on the career pathways of researchers who have received a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (URF) or a Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship (DHF). Identifies 1600 people who have received these fellowships, and describes how the Royal Society has set up a Career Pathway Tracker specifically to find out what researchers go on to do after their fellowships end. Presents the findings of the first stage of the tracking project, explaining that an online survey was completed by 82% of the earliest alumni. Shows that the majority of fellows went onto an academic career path and highlights some other career pathways such as commercial sector, third sector, self employment, and non-academic research.
