Postgraduate Enterprise Fellowships

Are you a postgraduate student interested in the commercial development of cutting-edge new technologies? Maybe you are interested in learning new business skills to improve your employability? Or perhaps you have an idea of your own as a commercial proposition?

A number of internship opportunities currently exist for postgraduates to work within Enterprise and Business Development to assist with the commercialisation of new technologies emerging from the University's research base.

Training will be provided in the following areas:
  • HEIF and Knowledge Exchange within the context of Universities
  • Assessing new Technology Disclosures
  • Intellectual Property Rights
  • Market and Competitor Analysis
  • Market Intelligence Resources
  • The Process of Commercialisation
  • Finance and Investment
The training is expected to begin mid September 2012 - exact date to be confirmed. Bursaries of up to £2,000 are available. Duration of the Fellowship is 6 months and will be structured to fit around your research and study schedule.

If interested please submit your CV and covering letter to both Tas Gohir and Rajinder Bhuhi.
The covering letter should clearly explain:
  • Why you are interested in this opportunity
  • What value you could add in this position
If you wish to attend the training sessions without applying to the Enterprise Fellowship Programme, you are welcome to do so - simply register your interest with Tas and Rajinder by email.

Inserting special characters in EndNote/RefWorks


When importing references into software like EndNote or RefWorks you might find special characters and diacritical marks are stripped out.

You can edit the reference in the software and re-insert the appropriate character in several ways:
1) Copy and past the character in.

2) If you using a Windows computer with a number pad you can hold down the ALT key and type in a numerical code for the character you want e.g. ALT 130 will insert é.

There is a list of Alt Codes available at http://www.alt-codes.net/

Penn State University has an excellent guide to typing in accents and special characters in Windows or Macs. Including Alt codes, Mac codes and how to use the character map/viewer.

These tips can also be applied in other software and web interfaces, as well as in bibliographic software. ☺ = ALT 1

Inserting Citations & References into PowerPoint with EndNote

EndNote X7, which is available on University computers, now has a toolbar for inserting citations and references into PowerPoint.


1)    Open up PowerPoint and place your cursor where you wish to insert a citation or a reference.
2)    Click on the EndNote X7 tab.
3)    Choose the reference style you want to use from the drop-down menu.
4)    Click Insert Citation or Insert Reference
5)    Search for the reference you want or search on * to bring up a list of all your references.
6)    Click on Insert.

You will need to insert the citation and the references separately as this is not a Cite While You Write toolbar like the one in Word.






















Your New Doctoral College Reading Room

The Doctoral College Reading Room, at the front of the first floor of the library, is now designed for use by PGR students and staff only.

The space includes a separate Silent Study area with desks and computers, a quiet area with desks and informal seating, and a bookable group study room.

We would encourage PGR students and staff to make full use of this space.

Masters students now have a separate Graduate Reading Room elsewhere on the first floor.

As part of the new arrangements there is now a Consultation Room, which we are also using for upcoming events, including Shut Up & Write! and Research Data Drop-in Clinics.
