Resource wiki unveiled for School postdoctoral staff

New wiki page contains information, guidance and resources for postdoctoral research staff.

While University and School webpages contain a range of information and resources for staff, the School of Physics and Astronomy wanted to create a resource aimed specifically at postdoctoral research staff.  The wiki produced by the School contains information on grants and funding, resources on career and personal development, and practical guidance aimed at new staff recruited to the School.

The resource was largely put together by student intern, Teodora-Elena Bulichi (who is due to commence year 3 of her MPhys Physics degree), with guidance and support from Prof Rosalind Allen, the School’s postdoc champion, and Dr. Adam Stevens, who leads the School’s Physics and Astronomy Research Staff Society (PARSS). Teodora undertook this summer internship as part of a University of Edinburgh Careers Service Employ.ed on Campus opportunity. 

Teodora-Elena Bulichi commented:

I thought it was a great opportunity for me to meet fellow staff members, help contribute to a valuable project and to gain lots of insights into the workings of the School and University.

Prof Rosalind Allen commented:

We’ve really enjoyed working with Teodora over the summer, and we are grateful for the commitment she has shown and the work she has completed. We hope that our postdoctoral research community find this wiki to be a valuable resource.
