Workshops for Early Career Researchers

We offer a range of workshops and resources to support Early Career Researchers to develop new skills and practice or to refresh approaches to research and related activities. This year we have created a 'research career road map' and have matched the workshops to the level you may be in your career as well as to the four domains of Vitae's Researcher Development Framework. The framework describes the knowledge, behaviour and attributes of successful researchers and is a useful tool for you to use when planning your personal continual professional development.

Please follow the links below for more information about the workshops and to book your place. Download the 2019 -2020 researcher road map (PDF, 79kB) and training programme. We have also grouped the workshops by topic here. Research Staff can also access a range of training from other providers within the university, including Research Enterprise Development (RED), the library, research data services, and IT services.
