FORGE is pleased to announce a talk hosted by Security Lancaster. Note that whilst this talk isn’t linguistics-focused, it will have some relevance for linguists looking to work in defence, protection, security, intelligence, and forensic contexts, and especially for students interested in devising a research project in this area. This talk is by Nicholas Taylor (Senior Principal Analyst, Exploration Division, UK MoD, Dstl), and further details can be found below:
Careers and Research with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD)
Nicholas Taylor will discuss careers in the MoD and provide an overview of research areas of interest to Dstl and the UK Ministry of Defence. This might be of interest to students devising research proposals in the coming months. Nicholas will also discuss the possibilities for assistance from Dstl/MoD with research projects.
