New placement scheme for Postgraduate Researchers!

This year, the Graduate School and Kent Innovation and Enterprise are launching a new placement scheme for postgraduate researchers.

The scheme will enable postgraduate researchers to:
• Undertake a full or part time opportunity working with a business or organisation
• Bring their expertise to a discrete project or problem
• Extend their skills, knowledge and experience in a commercial environment
• Take part in a programme supporting knowledge transfer and University-business engagement

Placements will also provide an excellent opportunity for academic schools to deepen their relationships with employers. Enquiries and applications will be welcome from businesses, organisations and postgraduates following the launch until the closing date of 14th February 2018.

Come along to the launch event on Wednesday 15th November 12.30-2.00pm in the Graduate School Training Room (Cornwallis East) to find out more.

Listen to presentations from people who have benefited from taking part in a placement or fixed term role with an organisation or business. Presentations will take place 12.30-1.15pm followed by a light lunch and networking.

This launch event is open to both staff members and postgraduate researchers. Book your place today by completing the doodle poll
