The MWP Academic Careers Observatory (ACO) is an on-line resource for Ph.D. candidates, post-doc fellows and early career scholars who wish to explore and debate academic careers in the humanities and social sciences. 

The ACO provides info on academic careers by country, discipline and theme, and links to research opportunities in Europe, job platforms and a list of funding from post-doc to professorial level. Check ACO documents and bibliography for other material on higher education and academic careers.To find out about our workshops and conferences on academic careers visit the ACO events page and the news section below.

The Observatory is not an academic career advice service, but it will help you clarify your ideas about different career options. Check our career tips for practical information on important career steps.

We hope you will find our resources interesting and useful. Feel free to submit your comments and provide us with feedback. Please write to [email protected].
