We provide training and research opportunities for our researchers.

We provide training and research opportunities for our researchers working in Healthier Lives. With this support, we aim to develop and enhance their careers.

Personal development review

We operate an annual personal development review process. This includes one-to-one discussions about each individual's ambitions and training needs. We also offer individualised advice and support in developing an independent research career.

We offer lots of training for contract research staff not only in skills specific to your research project but also to enable you to achieve your long-terms career goals.
