Cloud created by:

12 November 2010

An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Develops and maintains co-operative networks and working relationships with supervisors, colleagues and peers, within the institution and the wider research community.

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

  • Uses personal and/or on-line networks effectively for feedback, advice, critical appraisal of work and for responding to opportunities.
  • Engages with learned societies and public bodies.

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as B3.4 Self-management: Networking
