Our world of ‘information overload’ has never been more of a burden for researchers as it is today. And, just like commercial industries, academia too is under pressure to deliver more results with fewer resources. Technology is often where we turn to help us get there. Both Mendeley Careers and Mendeley Funding now harness machine learning to help researchers by suggesting job positions and funding opportunities that are most relevant to their interests and expertise.

With around 120,000 open job adverts at any given time, Mendeley Careers is the world’s largest free online search engine for job opportunities in science, technology, and engineering. This platform already saves time for hundreds of thousands of researchers who now only need to visit one website to discover the latest job opportunities in their field.

The recent implementation of machine learning recommender technology has taken this service to the next level; enter Mendeley Careers Suggest. Now, job opportunities that match your profile can land in your inbox, ready for you to digest after a busy day in the lab.

Similarly, researchers are under a tremendous amount of pressure to secure funding to continue their research. Again, the time and effort involved in trawling through multiple grant funding platforms is nobody’s idea of resources well spent. Mendeley Funding was launched in 2017 to support researchers in their quest by cataloguing funding opportunities from across the globe. It boasts 22,000+ active funding opportunities from over 3,000 organizations, including the European Union, government departments in the United States like the National Institutes of Health, UK Research Councils, as well as foundations and many more.

Additionally, now that this single platform gathers together such a vast quantity of funding opportunities, Mendeley Funding also includes profile information about each funder; now you can discover new funders you may not even realize were out there waiting for you.

Since adopting the same machine learning technology as Mendeley Careers Suggest, researchers can receive email notifications that inform them of the latest funding possibilities that match their research and profile. Mendeley Funding Suggest is set to make your grant application tasks so much easier!

So now, at the end of a hard day in the lab or sitting behind your laptop crunching vital data, you can rest assured knowing that Mendeley Careers and Mendeley Funding are working hard behind the scenes to help you make the next move in your career or secure that vital funding for your research. And perhaps more importantly, because these matches are sent to you as soon as they become available, you don’t need to worry about missing out on opportunities or finding time each day to check for the latest job adverts. All of this is done for you…automatically.

Researchers’ Choice Communication Award 2018 – “Science is not finished until it’s communicated”

RCCA2018_151_RGBScience is the engine of prosperity and change. How do we ensure that it changes society for the best? As the UK government’s former Chief Scientific Adviser, Professor Sir Mark Walport said, “science is not finished until it’s communicated.” Without scientists communicating their findings to a wider audience, the life-changing research they do would remain a mystery to society. And early career researchers are the key to unraveling this mystery and pushing for tomorrow’s progress.

Making science more open is at the center of it all. We’re talking about encouraging collaborations, but also breaking down barriers and reaching more people. Brilliant scientists are already leading the way. Take Mat Allen, for example. Day to day he is completing a Ph.D. at Cardiff University on Galaxy research, but online he becomes UKAstroNut, explaining to tens of thousands of YouTubers why we can see the moon during the day, and developing virtual and augmented reality apps, all designed to educate and inspire children about science.

Mat is the winner of the inaugural Researchers’ Choice Communication Award. Now, we’re on the hunt for this year’s winner. We know that alongside producing amazing life-changing research, researchers do a huge amount of behind the scenes communication outreach, to help put science at the forefront of the public mind. The Researchers’ Choice Communication Award is here to provide the recognition that these researchers deserve.

LinkedWe’re looking for early career researchers who are fantastic at communicating their scientific work to the public, going above and beyond the publication of their academic advances. To be eligible for the award they must be currently living in the UK, affiliated with a UK university, and have begun publishing no earlier than 2015. We want to see evidence of their amazing communications skills, demonstrating they have gone beyond the publication of their research papers and used any kind of public activity to help people make sense of complex scientific topics, or address misleading information about scientific or medical issues.

Mendeley Careers is at the forefront of this trend.  Soon it will feature its first recommender function that makes looking for the next job suggestions more convenient than ever.  Its unique algorithms will leverage the Elsevier ecosystem to provide tailored recommendations.  It will no longer be necessary to knock on opportunity’s door, opportunities will arrive in your inbox, matched to your profile and interests.

The millions of Mendeley users who have signed up for notifications will automatically receive these jobs; those who haven’t need only click on the downward pointing arrow next to their name on the top right hand corner of the screen, select Settings and Privacy, then click Notifications on the menu on the left.

Heather Williams, Product Manager for Mendeley Careers stated, “Mendeley Careers is already the world’s largest job search engine in the science, technology and engineering fields; Careers’ Suggest is the next step forward to connect the brightest minds to positions that let them pursue their passions.”

On Mendeley Careers: Brexit & Science – Brexit Means What?

As the United Kingdom departs the European Union, what is the future of British science and research?
As the United Kingdom departs the European Union, what is the future of British science and research?

On Mendeley Careers, we’ve just published an interview with Dr. Anne Forde of Cambridge University; we’re trying to get to the bottom of the complex issue of Brexit and Science in the United Kingdom:

“Brexit means Brexit” according to Prime Minister Theresa May; however, this statement masks a series of complex questions. For example, what will be the future relationship between the United Kingdom and European Union? Will Britain participate in European funding programmes such as Horizon 2020? Will researchers from the European Union still flock to Britain’s globally renowned universities to do their work? How are the universities adjusting to these seismic changes?
