Frequently asked questions

CPSE Post Doc Reps

We have two CPSE Post Doc Reps: Dr Sara Giarola and Dr Zoltán Kis. You can contact your Reps about any problems, issues or suggestions that you would like to raise. Sara and Zoltán will represent post doc views to CPSE Management and provide feedback from CPSE community. It is essential that you make efforts to communicate issues of concern. This can be positive feedback on aspects which work well (and thus might be shared as good practice) as well as concerns about issues which negatively affect the post doc experience. The Post Doc Reps will also be invited to comment on, and provide input to proposed changes to procedures and will decimate information to their peers. The overall aim is to improve the learning experience for CPSE researchers.

What is the CPSE Industrial Consortium?

This unique access to multinational companies is provided through the Centre’s Industrial Consortium.

The Industrial Consortium Meetings take place on the first Thursday and Friday in December. It is a requirement for all CPSE students to attend the Industrial Consortium Meetings . The next meeting will be on 3rd and 4th December 2020.
