University of Manchester Postgraduate Summer Research Showcase (UoM-PSRS)

University of Manchester Postgraduate Summer Research Showcase (UoM-PSRS)

                                                             Call for Posters

Manchester Doctoral College are proud to announce the launch of the inaugural University of Manchester Postgraduate Summer Research Showcase (UoM-PSRS), a unique poster-session that will exhibit the diversity of research conducted by postgraduate researchers across the entire University. The event will provide a great opportunity to network, whilst providing exciting new avenues for interdisciplinary collaboration.

 ·         For postgraduates, UoM-PSRS is a special chance to present your own research before peers and senior research staff, and gain constructive feedback on your presentation skills. The experience will be invaluable in building your academic profile, by both showcasing your research before a non-expert audience and by making key contacts.

 ·         For academic staff, UoM-PSRS is not only a chance to appreciate the vast multitude of research that takes place, but it also presents an opportunity to meet groups from different schools and faculties who may have common areas of interest.

UoM-PSRS will be held on Tuesday 24th June 2014 at the Whitworth Hall (number 50 on the campus map), from 12.30pm to 3.00pm.

 A light buffet lunch will be provided.

 Approximately 100 posters will be on show around the hall, and presenters will be present to discuss ideas with.

 How to Participate

 All members of the University (students and staff) are invited to attend.

All postgraduates from the University of Manchester are invited to present a poster. The posters will be judged by senior academic staff from the University, and a cash prize of £150 will be awarded to the best poster from each faculty (EPS, Humanities, MHS, LS).
