RD Resources

Researcher Development helps you get the best out of Warwick from your time here, and most importantly get the best from yourself.

RD Schedule Summer 2023

Check out the RDO Schedule Summer 2023 which gives details of all the workshops and support available to you and includes booking links.

For the summer we have moved our main focus to Planning for your career,( Check out our dedicated Careers Page) and also for Conference season. It is never too early to start planning where next after your PhD and to see what you need to be doing during your PhD to get on the path you want. Our sessions take you from early planning and strategizing, through to preparing for academic interviews, leadership, whilst preparing the ground ahead of you with understanding what employers outside of academia want from a PhD.

Alongside support for dealing with writing & presenting conference papers, we have support if you are chairing, networking for the first time, or presenting in your second language.

We are continuing with our very popular Research Methodologies, Writing Support, Wellbeing & Productivity sessions, so if you didn't get a place first (or second) time around, then get booking.

Part time PhD

For those who are studying their PhD alongside work, caring responsibilities, industrial partners' needs and life, then this community is especially for you.

A process that seeks to promote creativity and opportunities for science and innovation that are socially desirable and undertaken in the public interest.

A variety of frameworks, tools and resources have been developed to support Responsible Innovation, for both research and business communities. They share approaches which facilitate the anticipation of consequences, and engagement with stakeholders, including policymakers and the public.

Essential planning for your research

Research Integrity
