Managing Social Research – Sarah Pearson (CRESR)

February 12 @ 14:00 - 16:00

As part of Sheffield Hallam University’s participation in the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership, and in conjunction with the Sheffield Institute for Policy Studies, we are delighted to announce a new series of training seminars aiming to provide students with the skills required to move beyond successful PhD completion to building a career in the social sciences through post-doctoral positions, securing research funding and managing larger scale research projects.

These sessions will be open to all doctoral students and staff in the Social Sciences at SHU (ie sociology, politics, psychology, urban studies, education, social policy, health policy, criminology, human geography, business and organisations).

In the fourth event of the series on 12 February 2020Sarah Pearson, Principal Research Fellow at CRESR will deliver a seminar on Managing Social Research in Charles St 12.4.12, 2-4pm:

This session aims to equip early career researchers with the skills to successfully manage social research projects. It will guide you through the research project lifecycle from project planning and initiation to project closure and cover issues relating to the costing of research projects, managing staff and resources, ethics, health and safety, data management, quality assurance and managing relationships with funders and clients.  The session will also address the challenges associated with managing small and large research projects.

The session will begin with an overview of the research project lifecycle. It will then use a number of ‘real life’ scenarios to help you consider how you would respond to different situations and challenges in managing social research. The session will finish with identification of useful principles and strategies for successful projects, and signposting to further resources.
