PostDoc Project Supervision: planning – implementing – presenting research in your work Residencies are a very rich opportunity to work alongside peers under the facilitation of experienced researchers as Tutors. Residencies typically take 4 days, from Friday to Monday, and allow participants to develop their research, writing and presentation skills and to explore a range of different research approaches. Our residencies are often held in the city of Liverpool, UK, but our experienced team can hold the residencies at any place in the world.
Residencies are an ideal means to present to an audience of your peers and Tutors, and to receive constructive feedback on your ideas and methodologies in undertaking your thesis or post-doctoral research project. Residencies allow for rapid feedback and improvement, as well as targeted and tailored training.
Residencies can take place at any point of the thesis or post-thesis research journey. Based on the experience of our previous participants, residencies can result in significant time savings and pain reduction, particularly throughout the thesis process.
Residencies are suitable for both grouping participants at similar points in their journey for an enhanced learning experience, as well as bringing together starting and advanced participants within targeted exercises such as research presentations by the novice participant and feedback provision through senior participants advancing towards viva preparation.
Residencies will be run by two (or more, depending on the group size) experienced researchers with a background in quantitative and qualitative research methods. Students will have the opportunity to test their research method and instruments, and to receive feedback on how to improve it.
Attendance fee of the residencies depend on the number of participants. Costs start at €1,500/£1,350 for a minimum of 6 participants to cover tutorage and learning materials. Room hire and catering are additional, and will vary based on location and facilities required. Larger groups will either be catered for with a greater number of tutors and/or a reduced price per participant. This will vary, based on the range of support required during the residency to maximise the learning of each participant.
Costs of travel, accommodation and meals are at each participant’s expense. To maximise networking and continued learning, accommodation will be arranged to enable all participants to be located together where possible.
