Does it offer funding for students to attend conferences etc.? What arrangements does it make for the welfare of doctoral students? How does it seek to enhance the employability of doctoral students? What arrangements does it make for career development? Support for supervisors and candidates in the event of the breakdown of their relationship While institutions can and do provide support for supervisors and candidates to meet expectations they cannot, of course, guarantee that there will be a smooth relationship between them.

The The disciplinary context 35 expectations of research students are higher than those entertained in respect of their scientific contemporaries. These differences are, as Delamont et al. (2000) have shown, reflected in distinctive frameworks for doctoral education between disciplines, the extremes of which they define in terms of two ‘ideal types’, the ‘positional’ and the ‘personal’ respectively. The ‘positional’ framework essentially refers to the first case set out above. Here, research in the discipline is characterised by: • • • • • • • • organisation in large, specialist, research groups that include academic staff, post-doctoral researchers, and doctoral students; leadership by a senior member of the academic staff, who on his or her own or with colleagues determines the research agenda for the group; dependence on research grants for the continuation of the group and its work; submission of research proposals by the leader and/or members of the group including details of the substance of the project, a timetable, theoretical framework, experimental framework, experimental equipment, and experimental design; if successful, recruitment of doctoral students who are assigned to undertake particular experiments identified in the proposal under a designated supervisor or supervisors; daily attendance by the student at the laboratory; contact and support on a day by day basis by the supervisor and/or other members of the research group; immersion in the research group and its professional activities, including dissemination and publication, and where appropriate its social life.

36 The context The doctoral student is thus primarily an autonomous researcher following their own path with guidance from the supervisor or supervisory team, and has personal status as a potential intellectual equal. These are ‘ideal types’ and, in practice, matters are much less clear cut. So, students in large research groups may have a greater degree of autonomy, for example, if experiments lead to unexpected but promising results, while ‘lone scholars’ may be subject to a high degree of control by their supervisor over their choice of topic and the execution of their research project particularly if target times for completion are to be met.
