Today I started my new job at Oxford Brookes University. I’m a postdoctoral pedagogic research assistant (though you can call me “Stephen”, for short). I will be working on a number of research projects that the department will be running.

I’ve also moved into Headington, Oxford. I’m told it’s quite a fancy place, so please excuse me if my tastes suddenly change towards things more refined (I’ve already had a debate on the virtues of Yorkshire Tea over Twinings!).

So far so good. I really enjoyed my first day. I’m having my photo taken for the departmental website tomorrow, so I shall have to endure a second day of overdressing.
