About this programme
Research careers can be diverse, rewarding and exciting, yet the move from being an early career researcher to becoming a research leader can also be complex and challenging. Successful leadership in research requires development of a wide range of capabilities, it can involve balancing an array of different professional roles and relationships, and careers may move flexibly between fields and even sectors.
As a fully revised and updated edition of Professional skills for Research Leaders, and developed through a unique process of global collaboration with leading experts and institutions, Advancing your Research Career: Strategies for Research Leadership will support researchers across all fields and disciplines to take a strategic and reflective approach to managing their research career.
Made up of ten concise modules, the programme will explore the key capabilities that underpin research leadership, ensuring that researchers’ career goals are well-articulated and supported by a professional knowledge base. Integrating opportunities for critical reflection and goal-setting, this programme will provide flexible tools, case studies and practical activities covering key areas including leading research teams; collaboration; managing projects; communication and relationship management; funding research; and building engagement, impact and dissemination strategies.
As a member of the Advancing your Research Career development group, your institution will be able to inform all aspects of the programme via a collaborative workshop and rigorous review process – ensuring that it truly meets researchers’ needs – before receiving an institution-wide, unlimited subscription to the finished resource upon publication.
