Computer Laboratory Wiseman Award

The Wiseman Award scheme is aimed largely at research staff and research students (but may also include undergraduates) who make a commendable contribution to the work of the Department. The Head of Department will call for nominations from senior administrative staff and University Teaching Officers in July each year, and those nominated will receive a formal letter awarding them a "Wiseman Award". Recipients may wish to mention that they have received this Departmental award on their CVs. Staff and students can be nominated for more than one year, as continued contributions are most welcome and make a real difference to the work of the Department.

Although we cannot guarantee funding, those making a commendable contribution worthy of an award will be looked upon favourably when applying for Departmental funds for travel and conferences and for 10th term funding for PhD students.

Examples of the types of activities which will result in a nomination are:

  • Supervising/Demonstrating on a sustained basis
  • A leading role in women@CL and its activities
  • Outreach and participation in Open Days
  • Happy Hour organisers

This list is not exhaustive - there are many ways students and staff can contribute to the work of the Department. The decision to make an award will be at the discretion of the Head of Department.
