Researcher development for non-linear career paths

There is no single path through a research career. Doctoral candidates may have many years of professional experience, or complete their doctorates part-time or by distance-learning. This creates unique opportunities for researchers to bring their professional experience into their research, but also creates challenges for researcher developers in meeting the needs of this diverse population.


Vitae Connections: Getting to grips

The researcher development landscape is wide and varied, with many possibilities and pitfalls. If you are new to researcher development, either as all or part of your role, then this introductory event will help you navigate through this landscape from institutional, national and international perspectives, and give you insights into how to add value your role, create impact and effectively engage researchers in their professional development.
