Researcher Development Framework
Supporting researchers across all stages
As part of our ongoing staff development framework we are offering a series of support mechanisms aimed at different stages of your research career, which include training workshops and community events to help develop your research skills at every level.
See below to identify which part of the framework best applies to you. The categories - emerging, established experienced - will help you choose the best sessions to attend. Some will be useful for more than one level so you will see those sessions repeated.
Emerging researchers may be at the earlier stages of their research journey. This could include: PGR students, New Post-Docs, New to research, First Publications, Co-I bids.
Established researchers have more experience when it comes to research practices and may come under the following categories: Late Post Doc, New to SIGRES, Band 1, First PI bids.
Experienced researchers will have taken part in several projects and initiatives and may fall under the following classifications: Band 2-3 SIGRES, grant holders and Centre Leads.
