Letter: A qualified no

July 13, 2001

Aged 36, I have a degree from Cambridge, a PhD from Imperial College and 12 years' industrial R&D experience (nine years in Australia with a Forbes top 50 company and three years in the UK with a Forbes 500 company). I am a chartered engineer and my salary is £25,400 a year. It is no wonder "PhDs say no to poor prospects" ( THES , July 6).
