An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Contributes to teaching at undergraduate level.
  • Assists in the supervision of undergraduate projects.
  • Participates in research meetings (seminars, workshops, conferences, etc). Has a developing awareness of the ways research influences/interacts with teaching.

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

  • Has a developing awareness of own teaching style and techniques. Is involved with the assessment of student knowledge and supervision of projects.
  • Assists in the development of student research skills.
  • Willing to co-supervise postgraduate research projects.
  • Recognises the significance of translating research into other educational outputs, seeks ways for own research to influence teaching.
  • Organises research meetings (seminars, workshops, conferences, etc).

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as D3.1 Engagement and Impact: Teaching
