What is Postgraduate Researcher Development at UofG?

Our programmes and initiatives for PGRs at UofG are designed to enrich your skills and working relationships, foster your talents, and accelerate your professional prospects. They are underpinned by six priority themes:

  • Career Direction
  • Connection and Belonging
  • Researcher Integrity
  • Engaged Communication
  • Constructive Conversations
  • Innovative Ideas

These themes are strongly influenced by key strategic messages from the university and by the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF) which is a nationally recognised tool supporting research career development. The RDF sets out the skills, attributes and behaviours expected of researchers.
