At a university, teaching and research occupy dominating roles. The two activities link to each other, but are at the same time framed by different conditions forming a tension field. By seeing their relationship in a historical perspective and using examples from empirical research, this chapter aims to illuminate the conditions under which university employees find and experience the balance between teaching and research.

To invest in a PhD for some means pursuing a research career at university. To leave university at that point requires that after graduation the PhDs gain employment and that the skills they develop through their PhDs match the tasks they face in the labour market. Therefore, there has been an interest in investigating the competences and career paths of the PhDs in recent years. This applies especially to the PhDs within the humanities and social sciences. Drawing on data from a Danish research project investigating these groups, and on the theoretical framework of Pierre Bourdieu, the chapter analyses the career strategies of the groups of PhDs who remain in academia and those who leave university for other jobs.
