HOLD THE DATE: Postgraduate Research Student Poster Day
The Faculty of Science Postgraduate Research Student Poster Day is back and it’s time to drop it into your diaries so you don’t miss out.
Tuesday 17th April 2018, 9:00 am -12:00 pm
The Octagon, Sheffield
The 2017 event was hailed as a huge success so we are keen to make sure all students and staff in the Faculty of Science, indeed across the University of Sheffield, know that it’s happening again and will be even better.
All Faculty of Science 2nd or 3rd year PhD students (varies by department) will be presenting a poster describing their research and you are invited to drop in at any time during the event.
The aims of the event are:
- To showcase the excellence of the Faculty of Science research.
- To increase awareness amongst students and staff of the wide range of research being carried out and to encourage interdisciplinary thinking and collaboration across the Faculty.
- To develop confidence in our students in the communication of their work to scientists in other disciplines.
This is a great opportunity to talk to postgraduate students from different disciplines and find out more about the breadth of our Faculty’s research. The event will also provide an opportunity for you to engage with exhibitors from our suppliers and from University of Sheffield research support teams.
We look forward to seeing you all at the Faculty of Science Graduate School Poster Day 2018.
Comments from the 2017 Poster Day:
“I thought the poster session was well organised and I enjoyed partaking in it.” – Presenting PhD student.
“It was an excellent morning! Lots of positive feedback from Psychology presenters. It also inspired a couple of [my students] to finally commit to submitting papers/posters to external conferences. It was really good to have an example of a ‘real’ conference. I hope we can repeat it and extend it in the future.” – Supervisor.
“First of all I wanted to say that yesterday’s poster session was fantastic, it was great to see people from all the departments together in one place and I just wish I had been able to present there!” – Final year PhD student.
