Plant, Photosynthesis and Soil 2nd Year PhD Students Symposium

Plant, Photosynthesis and Soil 2nd Year PhD Students Symposium

22 April 2022 - London

The Plant, Photosynthesis and Soil 2nd Year PhD Students Symposium will be held in Firth Court on April 22nd 2022. We have recently combined 3 separate departments to form the new School of Biosciences at The University of Sheffield, and this is the first year that a School wide symposium for PhD students will be held. This event is being organised to provide a platform for the second year PhD students from the Plant, Photosynthesis and Soil cluster to share their research and gain experience in presentation skills. At the end of the symposium, a panel of Alumni will be hosted to discuss their own careers post-PhD in industry and academia. This will give current PhD students the opportunity to gain insights into different career routes, form connections and seek advice. We anticipate an attendance of 60 people; including PhD students, postdocs and PIs. There will be 14 talks by students, and a lunch break where other members of the University could be invited (by us or you) to see your stand.
