LSI PGR & Researcher Development Update November 2017

Monday 13 November 2017

Earlier this year LSI supervisors and their PhD students were asked what additional support and training they could benefit from and the common themes that emerged were communication, networking and presentation skills. Since then we have been creating opportunities to practice these vital skills, such as the ‘LSI PhD Cohort Presentation skills seminar’ - a bespoke workshop developed by Dr Ele Groves (LSI Researcher Development Advisor) to help our PGR students develop the key skills required to effectively communicate research. New courses will be developed over the coming year. If there’s a particular course you would like to see developed for PGR students or researchers, please drop us a line at


Save the date – Life Sciences PGR presentation and poster competition (and welcome event for new LSI students) – Monday 5 February 2-6pm

We will be holding an LSI PGR event (with prizes) on 5 February 2018. Final year LSI-funded PGR students will be asked to give short presentations on their work, with 2nd year students providing a poster. Additionally, any QMUL PGR student who has received LSI funding (e.g. travel or small grants etc.) will also be invited to present their research.  Attendance is open to all PGR students in the college who identify as a life scientist. The event will end with an evening reception to welcome the new cohort of LSI PGR students. All are welcome, sign up details and further information to follow in due course. For enquiries, please contact
