Are you a ‘mobile’ researcher?

Vitae logoDo you want to take stock of your research career path? Perhaps identify the skills and attributes you might need to be an effective researcher in an international and/or new research environment?

If so, take a look at Vitae’s new researcher mobility lens on the Researcher Development Framework (RDF).  You can use the lens to:-

  • focus on how to be an effective researcher in different environments (international, transdisciplinarity)
  • identify how the skills and attributes you have developed through research can contribute to, or underpin effectiveness in, a new research environment
  • select areas that you need to develop to be a more effective researcher and use this to inform development reviews and appraisals
  • provide evidence of the transferability of your research skills on your CV, in job applications and at interviews.

For more information about Vitae and the RDF please see their website.
