Angelique Wildschut (DPhil Political Science) is a senior research specialist in the Education and Skills Development (ESD) research programme at the Human Sciences Research Council. She completed her DPhil at the University of Stellenbosch in 2011. Her thesis focused on the attrition of female medical doctors from the South African medical profession. Her more recent work has continued to draw on the sociology of work and professions literature, but extends related conceptual frames to study the world of work more broadly and a wider range of occupations. She remains interested in the perpetuation of structural inequalities in the world of work and its relation to occupational description.
