Most PhD graduates in the mathematical sciences have gone on to a career in academia. However, the nature of research in the mathematical sciences is changing, the expectations of PhD graduates and of employers are changing and the opportunities are broadening. How should the PhD program change? There are global indications of how the PhD should change and these are starting to be adopted in Australia. I will explain how mathematics is changing and how the PhD needs to evolve.
