The Engaging Researcher
Years 4 & 5
Professional Skills for Research Leaders (available via Queen's Online, in the learning section under 'Other')
Professional Skills for Research Leaders equips academic, early-career researchers and talented doctoral candidates with the skills needed for professional development in a higher education context. The courses provide comprehensive guidance on professional development, from identifying individual development needs through to how best to communicate research results.
Professional Skills for Research Leaders will help early- and mid-career researchers progress from where they are now to where they want to be professionally. As a result, researchers will develop their leadership, management and engagement strategies by identifying a range of opportunities to establish themselves as research leaders.
