The Benefits of Research

9 June 2021

 Even before the pandemic many of us were wondering whether we’re on the right career track, and now it seems like even more people are thinking about making a change. Perhaps you’re one of them - maybe you’d like to try something completely different, or re-orient your work to do more good in the world. But making a big career shift can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know others who have made the same kind of move. In 2016 Dr Rachel Mason did just that, leaving a secure position in astronomy to return to graduate school for an MS in sustainable agriculture and a highly uncertain path forwards. Now a scientist in a field that is very different from her original one, Dr Mason will share her motivations for taking this leap into the unknown, describe some experiences along the way, and reflect on the pros and cons of taking this route. She will show that you already have valuable knowledge and experience to bring to a new field, while identifying important skills and personal characteristics to develop to make a successful transition. This talk will either inspire you to make a radical career change, or - just as important - prompt you to do something a little less drastic.
