Event Briefing

You are warmly invited to join us for our first SIPR postgraduate research knwoledge exchange event since our Postgraduate Symposium in 2022 on Thursday 26th January 2023 at the Glassroom of the Edinburgh Napier Unviversity Merchiston Campus.

This is an in-person event for all postgraduate research students at one of the Scottish Institute for Policing Research ( partner universities exploring policing related topics.

We will be hosting visiting postgraduate students from the University of Oslo who will, in conjunction with students from SIPR institutions, present their work in a series of 5 minute presentations. Topics will cover the full range of criminology and policing in both Norway and Scotland.

The event has a panel of highly esteemed researchers and practitioners who have completed a PhD in a policing related field working within academia and beyond. Panel members will discuss their experiences of completing their PhD, the career options upon completion and their top tips for PhD students preparing for the PhD afterlife. There will be time to network with panel members and PhD students during the event. The second part of the event involves a question-and-answer session where panellists will be able to answer any questions you may have about how to approach a career after completing your PhD and how to make your experiences from the PhD relevant to any future positions you may apply for.
