Dr Shirley Ellis

Shirley has been an active research scientist in the field of molecular immunology since 1980, initially at Oxford University and since 1990 at the Institute for Animal Health, a BBSRC-funded institute, where she ran a small, productive research group, supervising 10 PhD students to completion.

She has a long-standing interest in both postgraduate and supervisor training, and was involved since its inception with the training and accreditation programme for postgraduate supervisors (TAPPS) which is now administered by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) of which she is a Fellow.

She also has a long-standing passion for good writing, and recently completed an MA at the University of Sussex in creative and critical writing, with a dissertation entitled: Genomes and creative writing. She has worked as a part-time freelance trainer since 2007, and in 2012 decided to give up research and take on a full-time training career. She offers a variety of workshops involving writing skills for postgraduate students and early-career scientists.
