The 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:
- Presenting student and early career research staff issues to the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS) Graduate Committee (GC)
- Facilitating interdepartmental student communication to help the GSLS function as a coherent whole
- 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
