Being a researcher is an extremely demanding role. It can often feel like you need `ten pairs of hands' to juggle all of the tasks that you are expected to undertake - gathering information, conducting experiments, surveying literature, writing papers, contributing to grant applications, supporting colleagues, professional development, looking for your next job...!
These pages contain some basic tips and guidance and further reading on some of the key skills that will help you to survive and flourish in your role.
An entire sub-domain (quarter) of the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF) is devoted to ‘self-management’. The RDF can help you assess your strengths and weaknesses in this area, and discover ways to improve and develop your skills.
Some of the suggestions in the ‘Help and Support’ section on the Vitae Postgraduate Researchers website may also be helpful.
