PhDs are increasingly interdisciplinary with research across subject areas and sometimes with supervisors from different departments.
Interdisciplinary research can be stimulating, ground-breaking and problem-solving. But it can be also challenging: exploring unfamiliar territories, learning new methodologies, working across multiple subject areas, supervisors from different disciplines, publication routes and your post-PhD career.
Come and share your experiences of interdisciplinary research with a panel of experienced academics and current students.
Meet your PhD peers across the university – and the drinks and food are on us.
This seminar is organised by and for Doctoral students at QMUL and the University of London
