Pathways into Academia

There is no set pathway into the study of primatology, paleontology, or human evolution. Our Lab members all followed different routes to get into their PhD programmes and current positions. Through this page, we want to showcase how members of our Lab got into the field in order to encourage people who are considering pursuing similar research through sharing our experiences, highlighting some of the opportunities and resources that were most useful to us along our way, and offering our advice for the next generation of researchers. We hope this may have a positive impact on improving social mobility and access to academia and our field of research in particular. Please enjoy browsing our pathways below!
