The two days included presentations from cohort 1, guest talks, a poster session from the students, outreach presentations and demonstrations from cohort 1 and 2 and careers discussions.



Summer Picnic and Sports Day

On 14th June all our cohorts joined forces with the DTC and had a summer picnic and sports day with their students. We were lucky with the weather, as you can see from these pictures!

Well done Stash and Joe for winning the 3 legged race!!

Cohort 3:Team building workshops in Warwick

Cohort 3 attended a 3 day workshop, with the University of Warwick, from 2-4th May this year.The aim of this course was to provide postgraduate research students with an opportunity to build their understanding, skills and confidence in the key areas of team working in order to enhance their overall effectiveness as they pursue their research studies.






















Poster Prize: Jonathan Mannouch

Jonathan Mannouch, a member of Cohort 1, won a prize for his poster presentation: "Exciton Relaxation Dynamics in TT-Conjugated Polymer Systems" at the annual graduate student meeting of the RSC Theoretical Chemistry Group, which was held on 10th May 2017, in Southampton. Well done Jonathan!
