As a women I have to say... I don't think that disagreeing with parts of the original post makes those members sexist! Every coin has two sides.

Have resisted saying anything till now, as it seems a bit of a conflict thread! :o

Thanks so much for taking the time to reply with ideas everyone. Just to give a bit more insight, the criteria are quite specific (children of a certain age, 1-hour home visit required, English-speaking only - it is related to linguistics). I like the idea of rewarding schools. I just wish I could do something, ANYTHING without having to seek ethical approval again. They take SO LONG and time is so precious.

Also, it is just normal everyday participants (!) I am looking for. They don't necessarily need to have experienced a crisis or anything. They may not even be in one of the listed deprived area. Just not degree-level educated. Why don't they want to take part? The ones with degrees are super interested and have been passing on details to all their friends! ) :

I think you could get PhD funding without doing the MRes, since you already have done 2 masters. The publication is a very strong point, especially if it is in a quite well respected journal in your field.

I am not sure about the university reputation question. I'm sure someone else here will be able to give some insight to that.

Thanks Hugh.

Even with staff on board as Surestart centres I have had a very limited response. The door to door things sounds promising. I could at least put leaflets through doors rather than just leaving them in public spaces and getting no response. I wonder if the ethics dept will approve though... I think I'm going to try as it is getting desperate!

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.
