An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:
- Demonstrates self-discipline, motivation and thoroughness.
- Perseveres in the face of obstacles and set-backs but benefits from peer, supervisor or leader support.
- Deals effectively with the dull, routine, aspects of research.
Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who continues to do these things.
