Research degrees: what are they good for? Can you utilise the skills you have acquired during your DPhil in a career outside academia – and why would you want to?
Carole Souter, Master of St Cross College and ex CEO National Heritage Memorial Fund and Heritage Lottery Fund, invites you to join us for this panel discussion with individuals from a diverse range of employment sectors who use the skills they acquired during their research degrees in their current roles. Hear about their career paths to date, learn about their current roles, and find out how they utilise research skills in their professional lives.
The panel will be chaired by Professor Philip Bullock, Director of TORCH (The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities) and Professor of Russian Literature and Music in the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages.
• Dr Kate Williams - author, professor of history at the University of Reading and historian.
• Dr Michael Pye - Investment Analyst in the US Equities Team at Baillie Gifford.
• Dr Mark Byford - partner at Egon Zehnde.
