On Wednesday last week, Jamie, Imogen and I attended the first in a new series of employability workshops for postgraduate research students in the College of Arts and Law. Prof Michael Whitby, the Head of College, answered questions on forging a career in academia in the 21st century, which provided a useful insight into the job interview and selection process, especially.
Whilst waiting for the workshop to start (we got the wrong room, but we won’t talk about that), we got chatting to an English PhD student, David Robinson and ended up co-forming an interdisciplinary research group called Liquid Networks. The group aims to be a forum where postgraduates can share and discuss aspects of their research with peers from across the university, without the boundaries of subject disciplines.
