Scenario supported my research directly by providing courses on coding, but what I valued most from Scenario were the opportunities for policy and science-communication focused training. The knowledge I gained from these training courses, plus support from the Scenario team, helped me to secure a three-month fellowship with the House of Commons.
The SCENARIO NERC DTP is a well-organised program, aiming to train the leaders of tomorrow. It does not focus only on the academic aspect of the research, but also aims to have connections to the industry as part of the PhD project. In addition, it offers a lot of support as part of the DTP program.
Doing my PhD with Scenario has opened up so many doors to me that would be unavailable were I not part of this DTP. The ability to take part in training organised by ZSL and CEH have advanced my skills as a researcher as well as made me consider different avenues.
Scenario offers many opportunities for personal development that extends way beyond a standard PhD experience. By engaging with these additional activities, both social and training, I’ve really enjoyed my first year. I can recommend the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out.
Scenario played a significant role in my professional and social growth through the many workshops and social activities that took place during my PhD. These experiences not only equipped me with important “soft skills” crucial in academic research but also led me to form meaningful friendships.
I was part of the first Scenario cohort and completed my PhD part time over 4.5 years to fit around family commitments. I was based in the Meteorology department in Reading, which provided a very supportive, motivating and inclusive working environment.
My current work is related to what I did during my PhD and I have started to branch out into different areas of science as a result of the contacts I made. I would say the training and careers advice I received during my time with SCENARIO were very helpful and I recommend SCENARIO to anyone who would like to pursue an academic career.
I firmly believe that participating in the Scenario training school will equip prospective students with the tools needed to navigate the weather and climate science field. While a PhD within the Scenario program will undoubtedly be challenging, it offers the possibility of becoming one of the future experts on Earth’s climate in a critical moment where various stakeholders, from local communities to governments and private companies, are racing to adapt to the unprecedented effects of climate change.
