The Centre of Excellence Unit are inviting doctoral students working in relevant areas to present their research. This opportunity would most likely benefit students in the later stages of their PhD, who have collected their data and are in the process of analysis or writing up. The seminars would last around an hour, with 40 minutes for a presentation by the student and 20 minutes for questions and discussion. They can be arranged at a time convenient for the student in our offices in Central London or Croydon from April 2019 onwards.
This would be a good opportunity for doctoral students to help shape their research to be of use to policymakers and impact critical decision making which ultimately benefits the public and gain experience of presenting research to a policy-focused audience. It could also provide useful networking opportunities for their future careers.
Students should submit expressions of interest any any questions to CentreofExcellence2@
Expressions of interest should include the title of the research and an abstract of no more than 500 words. This does not have to be the final abstract for the presentation, but should include a brief description of the research area and questions, its methodology and any findings to date. You should also indicate your year of study.
The PhD does not have to be completed to present. Presenters should be currently enrolled in or have recently completed a doctoral programme, either full or part-time, and can be funded from any source.
