Our Early Career Network have produced this guide to welcome new ECRs and support those already working toward their PhD. They offer tips on topics such as publishing, conferences, networking and teaching, which are all central to the PhD experience.

"So, you’ve embarked upon a PhD in Politics.

Whether your thesis explores gender, security, legislatures, environmentalism, political theory or one of any number of other topics, we’ve written this welcome guide so that you can hit the ground running as a PhD researcher. Every PhD is different, so we hope that no matter how far into your thesis you are, we can offer a couple of new pointers that can come in handy."
