Researcher Development Office Hour

Welcome to Oxford, I’m Eleanor and I’m responsible for the Social Sciences Researcher Development Programme; I’m looking forward to meeting you as you start your doctoral journey. I’ve been around Oxford since 2009, first as a doctoral student in Socio-Legal Studies, and then after a few years away teaching in London, as a member of staff since 2018. I’ve got a pretty good understanding of the university, what’s about and how it joins up. I really enjoy making connections and helping students piece together and develop their own Oxford.

We’ve had a great couple of Office Hour sessions for the start of term, with chats that have ranged from the very specific (‘Where to find info on site-wide software licences?’) to exploring serendipitous common ground between students who happened to be there and found all sorts of connections and suggestions to share. 

If you’ve got questions about training, or developing yourself as a researcher while you’re in Oxford, this drop-in session is the very place to ask them! I’m happy to answer, signpost, and make suggestions or connect you as appropriate.

Those just looking for a bit of Oxford company are also welcome! Bring your own tea or coffee and find out more about what’s going on across the institution.
