Understanding the recruitment and selection of postgraduate researchers

Earlier this year I was involved in a project looking at the recruitment and selection of postgraduates. We’ve just published the report.

Mellors-Bourne, R., Metcalfe, J., Pearce, E & Hooley, T. (2014). Understanding the recruitment and selection of postgraduate researchers by English higher education institutions. Cambridge: CRAC.
