In three words or phrases how would you describe your supervision style?

Supportive, collaborative, guiding

In one or two sentences please describe your strategies regarding the following.
Provision of training:

Your training will be supervised predominantly by myself. I prefer to take responsibility for your training for critical thinking and experimental techniques at first, leading to more independence later.

Progression monitoring and management:

I like to be kept updated through daily to weekly briefings. We will set the reasonably ambitious but achievable goals through discussion. I expect you reasonably high work ethics.

Communication:

We will use both e-mail and video conference (Teams, Zoom etc.) whenever you need help but at least once per week.

Open door policy?

Yes, I am usually contactable for an instant response (if required) on every working day.

My expectation of PhD student working patterns?

Certain tasks in my lab need to occur at set times, and students need to be able to commit to a rota/timetable shared with other members of the team.

Notice for feedback (e.g. on reports, manuscript drafts, thesis chapters)?

I need at least 1 week’s notice to provide feedback on written work of up to 5000 words.
