Universities are cancelling or postponing job searches because of Covid-19 disruptions. The disruptions are going to shake up the careers of researchers at all seniority levels, but they will likely have the greatest impact on early-career scientists. 

The Academic Careers Observatory (ACO) has monitored the impact of Covid-19 on the academic job market in the Social Sciences and the Humanities and its effects on the larger scientific community. 

The research has been carried out by four EUI PhD researchers: Risto Conte Keivabu (SPS Department), Adrian-George Matus (HEC Department), Natalia Menéndez González (LAW Department), Nastazja Potocka-Sionek (LAW Department).
