Career Plans of Novice University Teachers: The Research Perspective


Introduction: The career trajectories of young university teachers have been a relatively frequent research target in North American and Western European countries but an entirely neglected topic of the Czech and Slovak educational research. This paper’s ambition is to narrow the gap. The research goal is to describe one aspect of career advancement of young university teachers - their professional plans after their entry to an academic position at a university after completion of their doctoral studies.

Methods: This qualitative investigation was concentrated on a sample of ten young university teachers currently employed in Czech universities. The data were gathered through in-depth interviews, sound recordings were converted to written transcripts, and then open- and category coded.

Results: The findings show how the young teachers adapted to the workplace environment, how they struggled with the double roles in academia, i.e., an instructor and a researcher, and which personal decisions they made for the next years in employment. I was revealed how the desire to attain assistant professorship overwhelmed their professional, occupational and personal decisions.

Limitations: As concerns the limitation of the findings, the qualitative investigation went deeply into the thinking and decision making of the study participants but was unable to draft wide generalisations.

They collaborate more often because they are more likely to remain as the first author in collaborated papers ( Kadel & Walter, 2015 , Ong, Chan, Torgler & Yang, 2018 ). Because authors who have early surname initials have better publication performance, it is natural to expect that they are more successful in their academic careers. Full professors who have early surname initials are more prevalent in top-ranked institutions ( Efthyvoulou, 2008 ). Moreover, faculty members who have early surname initials are

Barriers and facilitators to conducting research by early career psychiatrists: a literature review

psychiatric departments of American medical schools were found to be research-intensive ( Reynolds et al., 2009 ). Furthermore, the number of early career psychiatrists (ECPs) engaging in research appears to be reducing ( Silberman et al., 2012 ), although there are no precise data to explain this. One of the main goals of (academic and clinical) education in psychiatry should be to encourage individuals in the early stages of their careers to conduct research ( Dellis et al., 2014 ). The lack of motivation to pursue a career in psychiatry research could be addressed as
