Supporting our Researchers

The world of academic research can be a very rewarding one, with the opportunity to make groundbreaking discoveries and become a world-leading expert in the field of your choice.

It can also be a challenging environment to work in, so we want to ensure that you get the support you need in order to navigate your way through these challenges.

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the University of Sheffield provide our researchers with a wide range of resources. If you choose to undertake research within the Department, you will:

  1. Have the full support of the Head of Department and your research supervisor
  2. Be part of the Department's research community
  3. Be invited to attend the monthly Materials Researcher Forum
  4. Have access to the online Flock platform to engage with other researchers within the Department

The University also has significant resource to support you through your time with us. Take a look at the links on the right of the page to see what is available.
