Abstract

This report is about postgraduate training in big science — particle physics, space science and astronomy — and whether any significant differences exist in training outcomes, for the two discipline areas. It comprises a survey of PhD students at a number of universities which showed similarities between big and small science in terms of academic abilities, personal characteristics and motivation for taking a PhD. Employer case studies similarly highlighted few differences between PhD recruits in big and small science in the range and quality of their work-related competences.
