The Professional Academic is a blog for academics and the professional staff who support them.

It brings together insights; information; interviews; inklings; and those occasional idiocies that make us rage, or laugh - or both!

No matter where you are in your academic career - be it a postgraduate student serving an 'academic apprenticeship' or a fulltime academic, this blog is for you.

Perhaps you are a frazzled school based research administrator; or the manager of the research services or graduate school for your entire university, then this blog is for you.
