Settling In: The Researcher's Guide to Your University

Topic 6: Progressing your research career

This brief topic reviews the project management skills you need to effectively work as a researcher. It introduces further modules provided through the Future Research Leaders Program. These all focus on different elements of the project management process and have been designed specifically for university researchers. The topic describes these modules and offers some guidance on which may be suitable. The flexible learning approach means that you can tailor the program to suit your needs. All modules comprise online learning materials which must be completed (typically, approximately 4 hours work) before a complementary and concluding workshop in your university.
