Managing PhDs at Leeds Computing
- There is a course you should take (Effective Postgraduate Research Supervision) before supervising students. This was vague enough for all faculties (e.g. humanities my only supervise PhDs once a month), so contained very little read information, I finally got a link to the university regs out of the supervisors.
- There is another course to be an internal examiner (The Role of the Internal Examiner).
- You should record PhD progress (i.e. once a month) in GRAD. GRAD will email you every time any action is taken on any student you are connected with – add an email filter and forget about it!
- The “Engineering & Physical Sciences (EPS) Graduate School” minerva organisation has GRAD resources, additional course details (e.g. technical English), and a PhD student assessment roadmap.
- University supervision resources here.
- Eric Atwell can answer school-specific questions about the process.
Grants. Uni grant-writing-overview. For a financial details for a grant, email faculty research. They also like to know the outcome. I suspect we are also meant to tell Tony about past/present/future grants.
- Symplectic is where you deposit papers you’ve written. You should deposit them within a few months to make sure they’re REF eligible. They are then automatically hosted by…
- Whiterose. A paper repository hosted by three universities. Contact via Symplectic.
- IRIS allows you to annotate research outputs for REF? tracks grants? (I don’t really know?)
- This is populated autoamtically from Symplectic
- You can nominate your 4 papers for REF on the “Outputs Review ->Nominate Output column -> check box next to the ones you want to nominate”
- Through some undisclosed procedure, the nominated outputs are assessed externally. This can be found by clicking “Outputs Review (purple), -> scrolling down -> and clicking the tiny ‘+’ to show the review and assessed REF classification (green)” (Click image to embiggen):
