Liverpool supervisor and PhD student shortlisted for Postgrad Awards
A Senior Lecturer in the School of Law and an Eye and Vision Science PhD student from the University of Liverpool have been shortlisted in the 2019 Postgrad Awards.
Dr Aoife Daly from the Law School has been named in the shortlist for the ‘PhD Supervisor of the Year’ category alongside Health and Life Sciences PhD student Jessica Eyre, who has been shortlisted in the 'PhD Student of the Year' category.
Chosen from more than 140 nominations, Dr Daly and Jessica Eyre are amongst just 13 people to have been shortlisted in the two categories for the awards which are run by FindAMasters.com and FindAPhD.com.
The awards, which are in their inaugural year, have four categories including Masters Student of the Year, PhD Student of the Year, Masters Teacher of the Year and PhD Supervisor of the Year.
The winner from each category will be announced at the end of July and will win a Postgrad Awards trophy, and be promoted via the FindAMasters.com and FindAPhD.com e-newsletter (reaching almost 90,000 people), blog pages and social media channels. In addition, the winner of the PhD Student category will win a £500 cash prize.
The PhD Supervisor of the Year award aims to recognise individuals who go out of their way to give their students the best possible experience. All the shortlisted candidates have been singled out as being inspirational, motivational, and approachable, as well as having exceptional passion and expertise in their field.
The PhD Student of the Year award aims to recognise excellent and inquisitive researchers. Those shortlisted have been judged to be an integral part of their research group, who encourage and support other members of the team and work well alongside the wider research community.
