The University has an international reputation for excellence in research, and our research staff make a significant contribution to the strategic ambitions of the University. Within our diverse and international community, we help our researchers reach their potential and make a difference globally. We are strongly committed to supporting the well-being and professional development of our research staff, viewing researcher development as a partnership and so we encourage all research staff to take responsibility for their own personal, professional and career development. Supported by your manager, professional development colleagues and mentors, your development and career progression is in your hands and we encourage you to gain the additional skills and experience that are offered to you and that will allow you to reach your full potential and achieve your ambitions.
