PiCLS - PhDs in the College of Life Sciences, Dundee


    We are the PhD Students' Association in the College of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee

    We organise a range of events including sports and social events, an annual PhD retreat, pub nights, a solely PhD student-organised symposium and an annual ceilidh

    We hold monthly meetings with divisional PhD reps where we discuss upcoming events and get feedback and ideas for new ideas. These meetings are open to all PhD students

    We try and help all PhD students at CLS to meet up outside of the lab environment and we represent CLS PhD students on college management boards as well

    We are heavily involved in organising many CLS public engagement events, along with CLSPA

    And finally we organise a range of seminars and workshops to assist with future career development of PhD students.
