There are many such opportunities, from short term “placements” and projects through medium term secondments, all the way to becoming a Departmental Chief Scientific Adviser as a career path.

The Seminar will convene a panel of Cambridge academics who have experience of doing this, and will be chaired by Professor Lynn Gladden, PVC for Research, University of Cambridge.

Confirmed panellists include:

  • Dr Rob Doubleday (ESRC Policy Placement Fellow at the Government Office for Science)
  • Professor Michael Kelly (former CSA in the Department for Communities and Local Government)
  • Professor Frank Kelly (former CSA in the Department for Transport)
  • Dr Eoin O’Sullivan (Senior Policy Fellow, Institute for Manufacturing)

Discussions will focus on what the panellists have learned about “how it really works”, about their research and its relevance to the improvement of public policy, as well as how their presence inside Whitehall has contributed to the understanding of what universities are for.

This talk is part of the Centre for Science and Policy Distinguished Lecture Series series.
