VOLPATO, Gildo; VALLE, Ione Ribeiro  e  BIANCHETTI, Lucídio. Professionals in graduate studies: Motivations to face a dual work shift and interfaces between the academic and professional fields. Rev. Diálogo Educ. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.59, pp.1328-1347.  Epub 05-Fev-2020. ISSN 1981-416X.

The purpose of this study is to understand why professionals engaged in graduate programs, undertake these two fields of activity and the possible interfaces between them. The study involved 18 professionals who are researchers in 11 programs at five community universities in Santa Catarina. Semi-structured interviews were used and the analysis considered the principles of hermeneutics and dialectics, in dialog with the relational thinking of Pierre Bourdieu. The responses of the participants reveal a set of motivations and interfaces that justify why they face a dual work shift. These include: the professional field serves as a laboratory for the research problems of graduate studies; the relationship between theory and practice; personal, professional and academic satisfaction; a complementary income; promotion of work in events and recognition through invitations and awards; prestige and added value to their professional work and as university researchers; application of research results in their professional fields; expansion of contacts and partnerships for the realization of studies; continuing education, both in the profession and in the academy and; for vanity and personal marketing.
