Dr Kay Guccione
- Head of Research Culture & Researcher Development (Research & Innovation Services)
I joined the University of Glasgow in September 2021, and in July 2022 I took up the post of Head of Research Culture & Researcher Development, leading the work of the Research Culture, and the Researcher Development Teams.
Since finishing my postdoc (Molecular Biology) and starting my career as a Researcher Developer in 2010, I have developed specialisms and research interests in mentoring, research supervisor development and research community building – anything that revolves around a good quality conversation, and the making of a positive research culture. In 2018 I was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in recognition of my impact in this area, and this is where my work at UoG focuses. I am a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Masters qualified Leadership Coach. I have recently worked with the UK Council for Graduate Education to develop a Recognised Associate Supervisor Award.
