In my travels so far, I have been recording short interviews/monologues from interesting mathematicians talking about their career and/or an interesting piece of mathematics they have worked on. I have also collected a few maths history pieces on famous historical mathematicians from Noel-Ann Bradshaw of the University of Greenwich and the British Society for the… Read more »

I hope you will find this, as I did, packed with useful advice. “Careers for Mathematicians” is now… Read more »
