Event description

Description

All members of the research community are invited to attend the first PDRA symposium in the Department of Chemistry and make the event a venue for exchanging exciting research conversations and making it a fun event.

Lunch and refreshments will be available for those attending.

The event will start with an ‘Introduction to Fellowships’ event at 12 pm (in CG218). Research and Innovation Services (RIS) will provide an introduction to fellowships and to the assistance they provide to support applications. This will follow by a panel Q&A with Dr Basile Curchod, Prof. Judith A. K. Howard, CBE, FRS, Dr Robert Pal and Dr Russell Taylor, which will be chaired by the Director of Research Prof Graham Sandford.

This will introduce the funding opportunities available, the application process, as well as a great opportunity, hear the experiences of a broad range of academics with knowledge of fellowships applications and approving applications.

This event will be followed by lunch for attendees and then two sessions of talks from the PDRAs in the department. This is a great opportunity to find out about the excellent research ongoing in the department across many research areas.
