Researcher Development Programme

 

What is Researcher Development?

Researcher Development (RD) can be tricky to define! At its heart it encompasses all of the learning and development that you experience and acquire during your time in Cambridge. It provides you with the skills you need right now for your current work, as well as for your future, whatever that might look like. Researcher Development is there to help you become a professional researcher.

The core competencies you should be developing as a professional researcher have been drawn together and structured within the Cambridge Researcher Development Framework.

 

What is the Researcher Development Programme?

The Researcher Development Programme (RDP) is the University's central provider for the Researcher Development of graduate students and research staff. Our team develops and delivers a diverse programme of activities and online resources for researchers, as well as acting as a hub for the coordination of Researcher Development provision in the University.
