Welcome to the University of Leeds Research Staff Development pages.

Here you will find a range of training opportunities dedicated to your needs as a member of research staff. All our workshops are free to attend and are open to research staff from any faculty.

This dynamic programme offers training under five pathways including publishing, funding and career progression.

How does it work?

To overcome the time constraints faced by members of research staff each pathway has been designed to consist of a number of short training sessions.   Each pathway is made up of a series of short workshops offering expert advice and guidance. You can select the ones relevant to you or alternatively you can opt to attend them all. Occasionally we will offer full day courses and structured courses running over several weeks.  Some sessions need to be run specifically for faculties, details of these courses will still appear here but will also be advertised through your faculty facing team.

Where appropriate several pathways include links to other providers in OD and PL, for example Research Ethics1 and Research Impact. 2
