We are currently recruiting 18 postgraduate research students across the UK in order to contribute to a research project commissioned by the Higher Education Academy to evaluate the Postgraduate Research Student Experience Survey (PRES).
The work will be coordinated by Dr Lorenzo Vigentini and Barry McCluckie at the University of Glasgow and will provide important data for the evaluation and revision of the PRES.
The successful applicants will be part of the research team which involves 15 institutions and will provide essential support to the project by contributing to the evaluation in a number of ways:
- they will carry out nine interviews (8 with peers and 1 with an academic staff),
- they will be responsible for the data management and transcription of the interviews and
- will contribute in all aspects of research and the exploration of key themes.
You will need to be familiar with remote communication tools (i.e. Skype or Google hangouts), comfortable with office applications, and have an inquisitive mindset.
