Every year Glasgow Caledonian University Students’ Association runs its annual Teaching Awards campaign to recognise outstanding university staff and to celebrate their hard work in providing the best learning experience and support to GCU students. This year’s winners have been announced in 10 categories at the virtual ceremony on the 28th May 2020.
We are delighted to share the news that one of the SHIP Team’s senior staff members – Professor Lesley Price (pictured below) has won the Sensational Supervision & Support award. Lesley has been recognised for her sensational and enthusiastic supervision of PhD students, encouraging their professional development, providing motivating and stimulating feedback and providing support during their PhD journey.
At the Award ceremony Professor Price said:
“Whilst the PhD journey can be an uncertain and bumpy road at times, my role is to accompany and navigate students through its intricacies and seeing my students successfully completing this journey makes me feel overwhelmingly proud.”
Apart from her supervisory role, Professor Price is also a co-Lead (together with Professor Jacqui Reilly) of our SHIP Research group, which is a very successful multidisciplinary team of researchers, including clinicians, health economists, microbiologists, public health specialists and health psychologists committed to developing clinical practice by providing high quality evidence of effective measures to prevent infections across the five work streams presented below.
The team offers many interesting PhD opportunities available for full and part-time students under the supervision of experienced academics, including, Dr John Butcher, Prof Kay Currie, Dr Adele Dickson, Dr Ryan Kean, Dr Kareena McAloney-Kocaman, Dr Jen MacDonald, Dr Sarkis Manoukian, Prof Helen Mason, Dr Valerie Ness, Prof Lesley Price and Prof Jacqui Reilly. All of the SHIP Team’s PhD supervisors provide continuous support, guidance, enthusiasm, expertise and inspiration to their students and celebrations of the GCU Student Teaching Awards provide an opportunity to recognise and thank all the SHIP Team’s supervisory staff for being such an important part of our PhD journeys and for leading us, so successfully, towards the final destination. At the same time, we would like to encourage all those interested in joining our team and undertaking post-graduate studies in the field of infection prevention to keep an eye on our blog, the GCU website and our twitter account @SHIPGCU for exciting PhD opportunities!
