RSIO and Employee and Organisational Development work together to provide high quality and relevant opportunities to support the personal, professional and career development of researchers at Glasgow. Our training is designed to support you in your current role and also to help you move onto future careers, whether in academia or in other roles. To help you identify the right opportunities for your stage or aspirations, we've mapped workshops and professional development resources against the Vitae Researcher Development framework.
Visit the Early-career researcher hub to find out how we engage with our ~1000 research staff through our annual conference, postdoctoral researcher forum and CROS survey and see how these feed into new policies, such as our Code of Practice for the Management of Researchers.
Careers advice is available through the University's Careers Adviser for research staff, including one to ones and workshops. 'Careers outside academia' is a topic at the research staff conference and Graduate Schools often run mock interview or networking events with industry employers, which are open to staff. Katrina, the researcher careers adviser, can advise on relevant events and will email about these throughout the year.
RSIO leads the Glasgow Crucible (for senior postdocs, Research Fellows and New Lecturers) and also coordinates training and practical opportunities in relation to Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, Public Engagement and Knowledge Exchange. If you are a new Lecturer or Research Fellow, you may be interested in the networking opportunities provided by the Interdisciplinary Researchers' Network.
At Glasgow, we have a strong commitment to enabling researchers to take the lead in their own development and support this through our New Initiatives Fund.
