Early Career Research Training Courses


The training and development programme offered by the RBI has several sessions and courses which are particularly relevant to Early Career Research Staff. Our remit is staff – the Graduate School provides for the training and development needs of research students. Supporting Early Career research staff is a key aim of the RBI and our teams are always willing to discuss your needs and assist wherever possible.

The following courses may be of interest:

  • Introduction to Research at DMU – this forms part of the Induction programme and provides an overview of research at DMU, what you need to know and what support is available

  • First application workshops – these are run monthly and offer a chance to meet with one of the research application support team to discuss writing applications for external funding. Some preparation is required.

  • Writing for publication – these sessions are aimed at staff of all levels but may be of particular interest for ECRs. They look at writing for an external academic audience and the development of outputs for publication.

  • RBI Seminar Series – these are a series of sessions around applying for funding, commercial and business development, impact, context of research and other related topics. 

  • Other courses on Data Management, Evaluation, Research Methods and Analysis will also be of interest. 

Links to courses in different areas can be found on the other pages within this section. An number of courses are available in faculty and all faculties offer a mentoring programme|. A list of courses particularly relevant to Early Career Research staff can be found here|.
