I'm completing my part time PhD in machine learning/computational finance and work full time at the asset management arm of a bank. I'm writing my first paper, where I've only used resources at my university and not from my work. The intention is to publish to a finance journal. Do I still need to disclose my work affiliation?
The IP clause of my contract is very broad. I'm effectively assigning "all present and future IP rights" during the course of [my] employment to my employer, whether "in whole or in part, alone or in conjunction with others, using work systems or not, during or outside of normal work hours"
[Edit] Ok, my brother is conveniently a lawyer and in his opinion the wording "in the course of your employment" means such restriction is only applicable for work related activity. Before I started my PhD, I've asked (albeit a junior member of) our Compliance and was told that I can publish papers.
