Prosper. Unlocking postdoc career potential

Based in The Academy, Prosper is a new approach to career development that unlocks postdocs’ potential to thrive in multiple career pathways.

Our ultimate goal is to open up the huge talent pool that exists within the postdoctoral research community, to the benefit of postdocs themselves, Principal Investigators, employers and the wider UK economy. This is more relevant now than ever - unlocking postdocs’ expertise and experience will be vital as the UK moves into a successful post COVID-19 world.

Prosper is led by the University of Liverpool, working alongside our partners at the University of Manchester and Lancaster University, and is funded by the UKRI RED fund.
