Abstract

Academic environments can be complex and dynamic work places. Full of comradeship, yet also sometimes a solitary experience – and while there is a great sense of achievement in the research process to create new knowledge, there are the inevitable ups and downs to navigate through. At a superficial level, a research career, of any duration, can fluctuate from challenging, overwhelming and exciting, sometimes within the same day. Underneath this, there are more subtle factors that keep individuals going, through these ups and downs of research life. This self-resilience is different for everyone and what might excite or energise one colleague may dishearten another.
