Making the crossing: Your interdisciplinary PhD and beyond

19 June 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

You are invited to attend the annual SGSSS Interdisciplinary event on 19th June (Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh). The event has been designed for PhD candidates who work with interdisciplinary data usually defined as research that crosses UKRI council barriers (for example, social sciences with health, or with arts & humanities) though the event may be of interest to students working across social science disciplines. As well as attending to hear from our expert speakers, delegates will be encouraged to network with others who do similarly challenging research.

Invited speakers are established experts who have applied their research skills and social science expertise in range of disciplinary sectors.

Keynote by Prof. Thusha Rajendran, Professor of Developmental Psychology at Heriot-Watt University and member of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics.

Other contributors include Prof. Colin Graham, whose work crosses Earth Sciences and Chemistry.

The event is designed to support students doing research that offers ‘additional’ challenges and sessions will focus on career planning (which conference to attend? Which roles to apply for?) and writing up the thesis (should you merge literatures from disparate fields?).

Schedule to be posted shortly.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. SGSSS students are able to apply for the reimbursement of eligible expenses according to the SGSSS Expenses Policy. Please review these documents for guidance before submitting any claims or queries.

*** Please note ESRC students have booking priority for this event until Friday 26 May. After this date the event will be promoted amongst all interdisciplinary Social Science PhD students in Scotland ***
