Dr Graziella Iossa (Back to Science Fellow at the School of Life Sciences, University of Lincoln) has published a blog post on SoapboxScience about leaving and then returning to academia, while also starting a family. This is a really inspirational blog post and well worth reading!
‘I never thought I could go back to academia nearly five years after leaving it but here I am I have made the first step. It will be no easy task to get up-to-date with research findings, developing and furthering my skills and establish myself into my own field, but I am really enjoying it. I am hoping that writing about my experience will inspire more women to believe that it is possible to move back into academia after a career break.’
