Many thanks for the much needed blog for academics (postdoc for a long time) looking for career change. Hi all,
I am 35 yrs old, working as a postdoc in physics in the UK for the last 4.5 years. I also did my masters and PhD both from UK. I am planning a career shift from academia, by going for a full time MBA degree next year. Over the course of the last 2 years I have been realizing that as I am progressing in my academic career at this level I am doing less science and more and more management work (people, work, logistics), collaborating internationally as well as spending a significant amount of my time writing proposals to secure funding from industry as well as govt resources by selling my research. I now want to move on entirely by going for an MBA and then working on a managerial position in the energy sector. However I do feel a bit skeptical as regards my age and academic background being deterrents in the path I am planning to choose. I Being away from this sector for a long time leaves me a bit clueless. However I am trying to do some proper groundwork before I get started. Any suggestions would be very much welcome.
