Researcher Futures. Establishing yourself: productivity and people

Event overview

Pilot event. Places are free, but booking is essential (below). The course will cover the theme of being more productive and working more effectively with others through inclusion of specific training on:

  • Research Management: including time and task prioritisation skills
  • Working with Others: taking in information and communicating arguments effectively and cultural understanding
  • Taking the next steps to become a professional effective researcher

This programme aimed at research staff who are in their first or second research contract post PhD or equivalent and aspire to become PIs or project team leaders. This programme therefore, is aimed at allowing Research Staff step into this role. Those individuals whose career aspirations do not involve progressing ‘up' the research ladder (e.g. stay in their current role, or take their skills outside of the research environment) will also benefit from this training which will highlight that skills are transferable readily to other environments.

Hosted by the University of Chichester, there are a limited number of places available for research staff of other institutions in the SE region - please use the booking form below.


The Vitae SE Hub invites staff involved in researcher development at regional institutions to attend as observers for the day. The opportunity to observe will provide you with direct experience of the workshop in preparation for delivering it to your research staff if you choose to do so.
