"Excellent event, sends a very positive message to new staff that they are welcomed and supported"
This induction is an occasion for welcoming research staff to Queen's and, in some instances, to the community. It is designed to facilitate the transition of new members of staff to their posts in Queen's and to briefly look at some of the main issues in the University relevant to research staff.
This full-day induction introduces issues related to research policies and opportunities at Queen's for contract research staff. It addresses such items as Queen's Research Strategy, Research funding, the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and the research staff training and development programme. The afternoon session will focus on planning your research career and professional development whilst at Queen's.
You may have been in your new job for a time before the next available event but it is considered to be an essential part of your orientation into the University.
