Research Seminar Skills in the Life Sciences

This module aims to give PhD students a broad knowledge of a range of subject specific skills that they can apply in a variety of research interests. In particular, it will develop the ability of students to appreciate the relevance of research beyond their immediate area of study. IBERS runs a series of weekly research seminars, involving speakers from AU (mostly IBERS but also DGES etc.) and external visiting speakers. Students participating in this module would be expected to attend a minimum of 12 of these seminars during semesters 1 and 2, and to submit 300 word abstracts for six of these.
