Leadership development for principal investigators
Newly appointed principal investigators (PIs) are expected to lead and manage a research team, secure new research grants, liaise with stakeholders, publish, respond to institutional issues and agendas, and maintain and develop their own research expertise. Frequently they simultaneously carry out a range of teaching and administrative duties too.
These pages are intended as a convenient resource for new and aspiring PIs. Whether you wish to develop your people management skills, are considering the impact of your research project, or are new to managing a research team and don't know where to start, we hope you'll find guidance and support in one of the following sections:
- What is expected of a principal investigator?
- Research environment
- Managing people
- Project management
‘I think these pages are important - I've been a principal investigator for eight years now and this is something I need to do.’
‘I'm a researcher but not yet a principal investigator. I would recommend this site to my peers.’
