Psychology careers in research
Psychology careers in research may be based within research agencies, public and private organizations or, as is often the case, in universities. University-based careers vary, but tend to combine research and teaching. Research careers within other sectors are even more wide-ranging, but could mean contributing to governmental policy development (in areas such as healthy eating and exercise) or issues of importance for industry (improving work productivity, for example). You could also work for a charity or other non-profit organization, perhaps conducting researching to help resolve challenges such as speech impediments, brain damage, child development or the impact of legal and illegal drugs on psychological health.
