An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Gradually takes complete responsibility for own project and own well-being; develops independence.

Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:

  • Takes responsibility for own and others’ projects (students and less experienced colleagues).
  • Delegates in a responsible way.
  • Is alert to the needs for well-being of others.

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as B1.6 Personal qualities: responsibility
