Congratulations to Dr Holly Blake
, who has been nominated for the ‘Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year’ award in the Times Higher Education Awards 2019.
This is the world's first national award for excellence in research supervision. The awards are hugely competitive, the equivalent of the Oscars for the UK Higher Education sector.
The award criteria states that it will be given to “the individual who has created the most supportive, stimulating and inspirational research environment for PhD students”.
Holly was nominated following sustained achievements in capacity-building for doctoral students. She received a large number of positive testimonials from current, past and future research students.
She is one of just two staff put forward to the national competition by the University of Nottingham.
This is the second time that Holly has been selected for nomination to this national award scheme by the University - she was nominated by University Executive Board in 2016.
The national shortlist will be published by THE in early September, and the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in London on 28 November 2019.
