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.
