Gates Scholars moving on

  • August 20, 2010

Gates Scholars are moving on to varied opportunities around the world.

Each year we are delighted by the variety of destinations chosen by our Scholars when they depart Cambridge. Some continue with their studies, extending their research as post-docs, and sharing their knowledge and experience as lecturers and tutors. Others take their expertise into the fields of government advice, not-for-profit organisations, manufacturing and commerce.

Arun Jacob has completed an MPhil in Economics this year, and has been offered a fellowship with the Overseas Development Institute, the leading UK development think tank. He is posted to the President’s Office – Planning Commission in Tanzania, where he will work as economic adviser.

Kathelijne Koops will soon complete her PhD at the Department of Biological Anthropology and Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies, and will be staying on in Cambridge to extend her research, as she has been offered a Junior Research Fellowship at Homerton College. However, her work will very shortly take her back to the Nimba Mountains in Guinea, where she studies elementary technology amongst wild chimpanzees.

If you are a Gates Scholar moving on to greater things, please make sure that you keep your member’s page of the website updated!
