Here’s the video for the AQR’s Young Guns pilot evening, which Lesley Thompson and myself moderated.
This was a fascinating evening spent talking to a group of young researchers from some of the leading research agencies about what life is like for people early in their qual research careers now. Some fascinatingly different perspectives, for example that the research industry seems to feel a lot more integrated to them than it did to me ten years ago when I was at their stage.
I’ve written a piece on it for the next In Brief, which I’ll put a link to when it comes out. I’m also talking to the new AQR committee about it later in the month.
The evening was set up by Louella Miles and Vanessa Rogers of the AQR. Many thanks to them and everyone involved, especially the young researchers themselves. They probably don’t feel young, but compared to me they are. I think Rupert Murdoch feels young compared to me these days.
