Researcher Development Roadmap

The Academy’s Researcher Development Team have designed a flexible and innovative Researcher Development (RD) Roadmap that provides diverse opportunities for research and research-related staff to create bespoke development pathways in support of their professional practice. The RD Roadmap helps researchers navigate the wealth of online content available to support career development and progression, simplifying access to resources linked to key themes and available in a range of accessible formats.

Access to researcher development resources following end of contract

Please note that recorded researcher development sessions are made available either on the Researcher Hub or via the Academy’s intranet, which all staff have access to for up to three months following the end of their contract. Furthermore, the University has committed to giving PDRAs access to the Prosper prototype portal which can be accessed via here for six months after their employment ends. PDRA line managers will be able to arrange an honorary position for six months after their employment ends, allowing them to retain their University email address and to access “Prosper” and other development resources for that time period should they wish to.
