Developing your Research Career

Programme of career development workshops for postdocs and research staff at Queen's.

June 6, 2024 - June 7, 2024
09:00 - 12:30


This 4-part programme provides researchers with time and space to focus on their career development.

It will enable you to develop a deeper understanding of the potential for career planning and aims to support researchers in looking at their interests and abilities, their career objectives and to develop career management strategies that work for them. The programme includes a personally tailored career consultation for those who effectively complete the first three workshops.

The focus of the programme is on your individual career and as such it requires you to invest time and energy in looking at yourself and developing strategies that work for you. You will be guided and facilitated in the direction of making good decisions for yourself.

There will be a number of self-assessment activities to complete as part of the programme.  These activities will enable you to look in detail at your own priorities, skills, interests and values.  The programme will be intensive and participative and it will be important that we work in a collaborative and confidential way.

The programme is a mixture of pre work, presentation of material, small group work and tasks.

Participants will register for 'Workshop 1: Developing Your Research Career' only. Once registered, a place will automatically be reserved for you on workshop 2 and workshop 3.

Following attendance at all 3 workshops, participants will then be offered a slot for their Individual Career Consultation.
