Are you a PhD student at Warwick? Would you like the opportunity to share your experiences of research with a global audience and earn some extra money? Here at PhDLife we’re currently recruiting for new regular bloggers. Hear from editor Ellie King about what it’s all about and why you should apply.
Writing for PhDLife gives you the opportunity to share your thoughts, experiences and advice with researchers at the University of Warwick and beyond. It is a good outlet for you to reflect on your research, gain inspiration from others, or pose questions to our readers. You can write on a wealth of topics, from your experiences as a mature or part-time student, to how you applied for funding for your research and how this can help others.
This is a paid role, and we are looking for pro-active and enthusiastic writers from a range of disciplines and departments. You can be a first year researcher or just about to hand in your thesis, and all you need to do is write a minimum of four blog posts over the academic year.
As the editor, I will take care of posting and publicising your work, so all you’ll need to do is write! You have the opportunity to collaborate with other bloggers and the editor on your posts, and we will give you all the support and training you need.
Are you interested? If so, head to Unitemps to apply for the position. You’ll need to submit a cover letter outlining your interest and relevant experience, plus a sample blog post that we may publish if you’re successful.
But hurry, as you only have until 31st January to apply! If you have any questions, feel free to tweet us @ResearchEx or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
