Thread: Advice on recruiting parents to take part in research

Hello all

Does anyone have advice/suggestions on good places to recruit parents who haven't got degrees? My current sample is not representative because nearly all the participants have been to university. I've been going to schools (I'm recruiting parents with young children) in a variety of socioeconomic areas, but it seems the only interest is coming from those with a degree level education - even in areas of deprivation.

I welcome any suggestions/advice about locations, or other strategies you might have used (posters aren't always that effective it seems)...

Thanks so much.

At the end of the day you have to be passiomate about your research.
In my opinion this should always be the top priority.
People are generally hired because they are good not because of the lab they worked in.


I agree with that based on what I've heard. I'd say don't worry too much about the lab for the sake of its prestige etc. Go somewhere that has the equipment/resources and supervision you think you will require to do what you want to do. And be successful. All the best.

Probably a good idea. I just didn't have time as I needed to print the thing.

I squeezed two on... sort of wished I hadn't lol as it looks a bit tatty (simply because you can tell I forgot and then added them). But then again, it adds to the overall tattiness of it : D
Cheers all!

Hello all

Would you list references on a poster about a research study that is for a non-academic audience? Opinion or informed advice welcome.

Cheers

But I mean are they equal among themselves - like if you become a prof are you then instantly on the same level so as to speak and can throw your weight around with the other profs, or are there sort of sublevels within each level! Slightly complicated and largely pointless question! Just wondering!

Haha may their data be normally distributed!

Someone got a promotion, is now a prof, and is acting so different all of the sudden, even being a bit arrogant to the other profs - maybe to show that he is one of them now - I don't know. I find it quite interesting to observe!

To clarify... I mean for example within a department or research lab.

Just wondered... are people on each level of the academic hierarchy (e.g., lecturer, senior lecturer, professor) considered "equal" with those on the SAME level. For example, a newly appointed professor vs a bunch of more experienced professors, a new PhD vs... etc?

I'm not really into hierarchy by the way. But since it exists, I'm just curious about how it works in academia.

I need to use a mouse too. I always have a cordless mouse and keyboard plugged into my laptop (unless I'm on the go). I think the wristpad mouse mat will help if it is a support issue. Good luck!

Thanks pf329. I think there may be an APA rule though about it being an assumption that it is a first edition when no edition number is stated. I can't find it though so may have been dreaming.

Have you considered an ergonomic mouse mat? The ones with the foam bump for you to rest your wrist on can be helpful.

This is a question that only can answer! Reading into your post it sounds like might be a tiny bit reluctant about the PhD and maybe a bit more in favour of taking the job?

What are your longer term goals - e.g., what do you see yourself doing in 5 years time, or 10 years time? Will you be able to progress with the job (offered) to the position you want, or will you need a PhD anyway? Even if you need a PhD, you might decide that you like the idea of the job so much that maybe you'll do a PhD later. There's no limit on age (although maybe later you'll have more commitments...). How passionate are you about the PhD/TA route? These are all things to consider : ) Hope this helps a bit!
