A number of new placement opportunities for our Postgraduate researchers (PGRs) are now available through the Liverpool Doctoral College (LDC) Pilot Placement Scheme, including two at Knowsley Hall and Knowsley Safari Park.
A successful doctoral student will get the chance to explore archive material in order to build up a clearer picture of the relationship between Knowsley Park and Gardens with the renowned landscape architect and designer, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.
A further placement opportunity exploring new ways to engage with visitors in a drive-hrough environment, will provide the opportunity for doctoral students to trial new methods of engagement, potentially using the technological expertise developed through their PhD in a new environment.
Previous successful are currently undertaking a wide variety of placement activity.
Seamus Bryne from the School of Law and Social Justice and Alyson Blanchard from the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society are undertaking a inter-disciplinary analysis of education data forAngel Solutions who are also providing a further opportunity in health data through the next round of the scheme.
Carl Fletcher from Electrical Engineering and Electronics, was successful under the dual award application method. Carl received a £1,000 bursary via the top-up fund to undertake a placement, enhancing his current research using mass spectrometry to develop new methods in detecting explosives.
Carl’s PhD Supervisor, James Bradley, said “This placement has the potential to produce novel methodology for rapid detection of explosives as well as having the potential to yield the material for a joint collaborative journal publication”
How to apply
The deadline for the third round of the LDC Pilot Placement Scheme is Monday, 16 May 2016.
