ARE YOU AN EARLY CAREER RESEARCHER WHO WOULD LIKE TO DEVELOP YOUR RESEARCH SKILLS?
How to be an effective researcher for research staff is a two-day, non-residential programme which explores the process of becoming a more independent research manager and leader, including the practical skills required for successful project management, and the further development of intellectual independence.
Specifically, the course will cover:
- project management – for your own projects, and in assisting others with their projects, including the creativity of developing new projects
- prioritisation of competing tasks and managing complex, diverse workloads
- people management – managing others (students, technicians, etc) and being managed (PIs, department heads, etc)
- communication about your research, your goals and yourself
- orientation within your longer-term career
These areas will be addressed through experiential learning and will also respond to the issues raised by participants. Full attendance on both days is required as programme activities have been designed to integrate self-awareness and learning across key areas of project management and career development.
