Covid-19: Impact on Researchers

The Student Mental Health Research Network (SMaRteN), in partnership with Vitae, is conducting research into the impact of COVID-19 on the working lives of doctoral researchers and research staff.

The aim is to provide insights to enable the sector to better support early career researchers.

All doctoral students and early career researchers, usually resident in the UK or currently working / studying in the UK are welcome to participate.

Participate in the survey

The survey will be live until Sunday 3 May.

Following the closure of the survey, SMaRteN will release anonymised data, enabling researchers and interested stakeholders to engage with analysis. Universities where the sample response size is large enough to ensure anonymity of respondents, may have access to their universities data. Vitae will release a summary of findings, analysed by their team, for university policy makers and funders.
