The RDM Career Development Committee (CDC) aims to support the career development of all staff and students across RDM. The CDC plays a key role in raising awareness of career opportunities across the department, in providing training and support at key career transitions (eg postdoc to independent researcher) and in championing career development.

The CDC reports to the Athena Swan Steering Group and is responsible for delivering a number of actions in the Athena Swan Silver Action Plan. The CDC is chaired by Professor Leanne Hodson, Associate Professor of Diabetes and Metabolism (OCDEM). The CDC membership is balanced across the divisions within RDM and also represents people from all staff groupings within the department. By structuring the CDC in this way, we hope that local ideas and priorities will be fed up to the CDC. Alternatively, if you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas for the CDC, please feel free to email them to: cdc@rdm.ox.ac.uk.
