Serving the academy and your international career

Advance your international academic career
How far do you want your academic career to take you? Opportunities for international collaboration and travel can help you build your scholarly profile.

Half of the respondents in a Nature poll in 2011 said that it is ‘‘very important’ for young researchers to work abroad early in their careers.” At some point in your career you may want to consider institutions beyond your current location. An opportunity could arise through the network that you have built up throughout your career, or it could be something that you are actively seeking here on Global Academy
Since launching in 2012 we have been working collaboratively with research led university alliances world-wide to help increase access to research and teaching roles in the academy. Here at Global Academy we facilitate greater geographic mobility to enhance academic careers and increase the potential for international collaborations.
