How has the pandemic and its associated fallout affected doctoral students' career aspirations and priorities? We investigate this question by comparing responses to a PhD career survey prior to and following significant developments in the pandemic. We find little evidence that the pandemic caused substantial shifts in PhD students' aspirations and priorities. However, some differences emerge when considering later dates in our survey period, particularly among more senior students who express a greater interest in some non academic careers and job characteristics. Contrary to expectation, we also find evidence that the pandemic improved some students' perceptions of their academic departments.
