Researcher Development

The Doctoral College offers a range of development opportunities for research and academic staff (see below). There is also separate provision for postgraduate research students which can be found here. A few of the sessions are also aimed at administrators of grants.

Please do get in touch if you would like other types of development opportunities – if you need something, it is very likely there are others in the University who need it too, and we will try and source the training internally or externally. Just email dcevents@le.ac.uk.
