UCL Research Staff & Development Programme
We have the pleasure of introducing you to the new bespoke UCL Research Staff Development Programme (RSDP), organised centrally through HR Organisational Development.
The RSDP is aimed at supporting the development of all UCL research staff at various levels in their current research roles and in preparation for future careers. It focuses on developing research skills in becoming independent researchers, as well as professional and personal skills necessary for different career stages or sectors, academic or non-academic.
You can see below a few of the forthcoming events, or you can go directly to the RSDP Course Calendar and book your place. These are some of the courses available, and more will be advertised throughout the year.
