Highlights of Carnegie PhD Scholars Gathering 2018

On the 7th February 2018 we welcomed 35 new and continuing Carnegie PhD Scholars. The event, held at The Royal Society of Edinburgh, included poster sessions for first year Scholars and research presentations for continuing Carnegie Scholars.

We were delighted to welcome back former Carnegie Scholar Dr Gillian Murray Dickson who talked about her experience since completing her PhD and her current role as a Conservation Geneticist at Edinburgh Zoo. Gillian undertook a PhD at the University of Aberdeen, graduating in 2011.

A judging panel of Prof Dame Anne Glover, Prof Andy Walker and Judith Sischy awarded the Best Poster to Kelly Brown and the Best 3×3 Presentation to Beth Johnston. The People’s Choice Awards for Best Poster went to Natalie Sinclair and 3×3 Presentation went to Gavin Macauley.
