Researcher Development


Covid-19 Update

Our usual programme of face-to-face workshops and support has been temporarily suspended. Instead, please check out RD Online, where you can find a whole host of remotely-accessible content.

You can also find a comprehensive hub of online development opportunities for postdocs on the Postdoc Academy website.

If you're involved in teaching, please take a look at the CCTL website for advice and support on Teaching in 2020-21, including undergraduate supervisions.



To get started, we recommend the three courses below, which will launch your path of personal and professional development and help position you to create and take up a variety of opportunities for progression.
