‘Coffee and Cocktails’ is a podcast for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) and/or individuals thinking of taking the plunge and diving into academia. We discuss and address issues faced by ECRs in academia by trying to recognize and think of solutions to current debates across different fields. This week’s topic focuses on issues faced by ECRs in the job market. Topics discussed include: job insecurity and mobility, teaching vs. publications and using social media as a job promotion platform in both American and British institutions.
