Development as a Supervisor or PI

Development for PIs and Supervisors

Research leadership encompasses both being a leading researcher in your field, and being a leader of other researchers: both Postgraduate Researchers and Research Staff. 'Researcher Development' is the term for the broad spectrum of opportunities, experiences, conversations and reflective work that you do, alongside your research, to enrich your skills and working relationships, foster your talents, and accelerate your professional prospects.

The University of Glasgow offers a wide range of opportunities including events, stand-alone workshops, mentoring, peer networks, communities, and leadership development programmes to develop you as a  research leader. We aim to support you to reflect on your needs and ambitions, navigate the ecology of development available to you at UofG and, have agency to make informed and active choices about your professional and career development.
