Part-time research students, who are in the first half of their studies, are invited to a free Part Time Researcher day at the University of Warwick on Friday 6th February from 10am to 4:30pm.
The day offers an opportunity to meet and share experiences with other part-time researchers and, with the support of facilitators, discuss common issues facing part-time researchers and work towards practical solutions to some of them.
The workshop will cover:
- The ethos and process of part-time research
- Working with your part-time supervisor
- Managing your time / avoiding self-sabotage
- Setting practical objectives to help you work more effectively
To book or for more information please see the Part Time Researcher document attached.
The 16th October 2013 is UN World Food Day. To tie in with this, the University of Warwick is holding a one-day conference, “Food (In)Security Research Network: International and trans-disciplinary perspectives”. Supported by BISA-PGN and GEM PhD School, the conference will be the starting point for a new multi-disciplinary postgraduate community focusing on issues and ideas relating to food security.
