An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Makes best use of available resources.
  • Knows immediate academic system/work environment.

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

  • Makes creative use of available resources; cultivates useful connections.
  • Is aware of local reporting mechanisms and house styles, and of procurement law and best practice.
  • Recognises corporate culture and what is acceptable within it; acknowledges the impact of own role within it.
