Researcher Development Programme


01223 (7)66240

Researcher Development Implementation Lead

Ben arrived in Cambridge in 2000 to study Natural Sciences as an undergraduate , and has since completed a PhD in Biophysics at the MRC Cancer Cell Unit, plus several immunology postdocs around the city. He has had the privilege of teaching undergraduate medics at St John's College, where he is now a Director of Studies.

His role as a Researcher Developer now allows him to share the skills he found helpful in his research with current PhD students, and hopefully help them to balance their research output and personal development in a more effective way.

Within the RDP he has a special interest in teaching in Higher Education (he is a tutor on the Teaching Associates' Programme) as well as communication skills, especially in a face-to-face context. He also works with the Graduate School of Life Sciences to develop and deliver their RD activities.
