GRASP 5The Remit of the GRASP forum

The Graduate Student and Postdoc forum (GRASP) was developed in 2011 to provide postgraduate students and early career researchers in Life Sciences with a Graduate School-wide focus for communication of ideas, mutual concerns and new regulations, as well as promoting coordination of academic activities, including student-run conferences.

Specifically, GRASP is responsible for:

  1. Presenting student and early career research staff issues to the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS) Graduate Committee (GC)
  2. Facilitating interdepartmental student communication to help the GSLS function as a coherent whole
  3. Consulting with the GC on matters related to academic education, scientific training, transferable skills training and careers training that are of direct relevance to postgraduate students and early career researchers
