Researcher Development Programme (ECRs)

The Researcher Development training programme for ECRs, is a development programme specifically designed for Early Career Research staff (i.e. staff on research contracts on grades E to G), across all campuses of the University of Exeter.

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.

All course bookings are done via iTRENT.

If you have any problems booking onto a course please email us at: researcherdevelopment@exeter.ac.uk.
