Dr Kay Guccione

  • Head of Research Culture & Researcher Development (Research & Innovation Services)

Biography

I joined the University as Researcher Development Manager in September 2021, and in July 2022 I took up the post of Head of Research Culture & Researcher Development. I am a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Masters qualified, accredited leadership coach.

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. 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.

My external key projects and collaborations are the Hidden Curriculum in Doctoral Education blog and book series, the Supervising PhDs blog, Thriving Part Time - a forthcoming book, the Are You OK PhD Supervisor mental health toolkit, and my work with the UK Council for Graduate Education to develop a Recognised Associate Supervisor Award for postdoctoral researchers.
