"Lost in Application" investigates the psychological and financial impact of the search for an academic job in the UK in the Brexit era.

The survey is addressed to all UK-based early-career scholars whose PhD has been awarded within the last three years AND who has never held a permanent position in HE during their studies.

The aim of this study is to open conversation about a topic that I firmly believe to be overwhelmingly unreported and call for change.

Survey closes 30th July 2019.
