University of Leicester announces new Doctoral College
A new Doctoral College that will help to nurture the next generation of researchers and equip them with leadership and enterprise skills has been launched at our University today.
Serving the University’s postgraduate research student population, the new college will particularly seek to evidence and celebrate the contribution that postgraduate researchers and research staff make to the University’s research portfolio.
There is a mixture of silent and study space with PC access, a bookable group room for collaborative work, and a range of informal seating in the quiet area. The Nicholas Corah Doctoral College Reading Room in the David Wilson Library will provide dedicated space for PhD students and researchers to work and study.
Professor David Lambert, who has been appointed Director of the Doctoral College, will play a key role in targeting opportunities, both national and international, for building Leicester’s studentship and fellowship portfolio, and funding strategic initiatives
Professor Lambert said: "The Doctoral College will ensure that researchers across different stages of the research career stay at the very heart of the University’s intellectual endeavour. We will be evidencing and celebrating the contribution that postgraduate researchers and research staff make to the University’s research portfolio."
