Early Career Researcher (ECR) Training and Development

We have a wide range of development opportunities available for Early Career Research staff (i.e. staff on research contracts on grade E to G), across all campuses of the University of Exeter. All course bookings are done via TRENT. If you have any problems booking onto a course please email us at: researcherdevelopment@exeter.ac.uk

We encourage you to complete the following Researcher Development introductory activities which are in addition to the general mandatory University-wide staff induction training for all staff or any College-specific induction activities that you might be required to complete:

  • Researcher Development Introductory Session – who we are, what we do and how to engage
  • Researcher Career Explorer - a short course which examines your career options
  • Profiling for Success – online self-assessment tools

All of our courses have been mapped against the national Researcher Development Framework (RDF), a tool that helps you consider your professional development as a rounded researcher. Most of our courses address multiple domains and sub-domains.
