Do (did/would) you love your PhD? Last week a number of Edinburgh Napier University PhD students celebrated Valentine’s Day by explaining why they are passionate about their doctoral research. Amongst them was one of the students that I supervise: John Mowbray.
John is conducting ESRC-funded research that explores the networking behaviours of young job seekers from an information behaviour perspective. He is one of two students in my research group whose work is co-sponsored by Skills Development Scotland. (The other is Lyndsey Jenkins.)
See the #PhDate post on the Edinburgh Napier web pages to read about:
- John’s passion for Information Science research;
- How the strong external reputation of Edinburgh Napier’s Centre for Social Informatics and his director of studies attracted John to apply to Napier to undertake a PhD;
- John’s desire for the findings of his thesis (due to be submitted later this year) to make an impact.
John has also written a short review about taking part in the #PhDates campaign on his own web site.
