And the winner is…

The winner will of this year’s award will be the individual who has created the most supportive, stimulating and inspirational research environment for doctoral students. This year the nomination process required the supervisor’s institution to support the submission and student testimonies had to be included in the supplementary documentation.

The winner, selected by a panel of judges – including our Chair, Gill Clarke – will be the supervisor who has seen outstanding results of their supervision, pioneered an approach to supervision, and has demonstrated enthusiasm for their role and gone the extra mile to help their students navigate through difficulties.

We’re sure you’ll join us in wishing all the nominees the very best of luck!
