Thousands of academics have already migrated to the UK, Europe and other areas to develop their Global Academic Careers and experience-rich academic and cultural offerings. If you have ever thought about working overseas or are looking for a new challenge, watch this careers webinar with our Trustee-level Partner jobs.ac.uk to help you explore your options.
Working abroad in any profession has its attractions – whether it’s a warmer climate or better cost of living – but for academics, life overseas can be a little bit more tempting, so, whether it’s to fast-track your career, expand your personal horizons or foster long-term collaborations, globalizing your academic career does have lots of exciting benefits. Unfortunately, lots of academics are unaware of the opportunities available and how to capitalise on them so we really hope to address this in this very webinar. Going global can also be a very big decision to make with important things to consider before planning the move, after all, it’s not always easy to uproot oneself from your surroundings, so in this video, we’re going to pick up on some of these key benefits and some of the things you need to consider to become a global academic. We have two really good panellists on board, we have Professor Eugene Clark and Dr. Mitzi Waltz. Together they’re both very seasoned travellers who will share their tips, insights and experiences about finding global academic opportunities and working and living overseas.
Professor Clark is a distinguished professor of law and a senior foreign expert within the College of Comparative Law at the China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing. Professor Clark’s session is going to explore three areas: first a look at some the benefits working abroad, then we’re going to look at how to find these global opportunities and finally, we’ll spend some time looking at some different countries within the Asia-Pacific region that professor Eugene’s spent some time in.
Dr Mitzi Waltz is an associate lecturer in autism studies with Sheffield Hallam University which is based in England and she’s also a contract researcher with disability studies in the Netherlands. Dr. Waltz will focus on what it’s like to work in the UK and also Europe, she will also provide some considerations in choosing a University overseas and will then offer some application tips to help you secure that global job.
