I have been offered a Part time phd but I have also been offered a job, the new job are happy for me to do it but they want me to list them in the affiliations
Do I need to tell the university about the change in roles as potentially conflict as the role is in research and audit
Is the conflict going to affect either your job or research? I understand you can't go into details but a PhD student shouldn't have any major conflicts of interest that can't be easily resolved. Unless your jobs requires you to have an active business relationship with a part of the university I doubt anyone will care. Though it is generally is it better to declare a conflict upfront; as in politics, the allegation of covering up a conflict is usually worse than the actual misdemeanour
Also, listing your employer in the affiliations shouldn't be a major issue and I have seen several journal articles were an author is affiliated to both a university and a company.
