Bristol Clear Vision

Researchers aspire to a career defined by the pure joy of discovery. But the world of academic research can be noisy and pressured, and research staff can often feel unseen and unheard. Caught up in the daily demands of their role, they can struggle to find time and space to pause and consider; to test the progress of their journey so far and find the skills and support to continue it in the right direction. If that’s how you feel, then Bristol Clear is here for you.

Our vision is to provide an environment for clarity, honesty and a renewed perspective for our research staff. Time to learn and to reflect. Space to explore choices. Encouragement to speak your mind and find the quiet confidence to define your own path. This is what we mean by Bristol Clear.

We’re working hard to build and grow this community; to foster a positive culture for researchers and their work at, and beyond, the University of Bristol. Founded on mutual support, open communication and opportunity, we invite you to make Bristol Clear, and its alternative rhythm and way of thinking, your own.

This is your academic career, your journey and your life. We’re here to listen, support, challenge, and champion you, so that you can make the right choices for you and the life you want to live.

Your life, your career. Bristol Clear.
