Researcher Development Framework

Our Researcher Development Framework (RDF) has been developed with input from colleagues across our community to provide a thorough career focal point for our researchers.

We want to make it easy for you to create your personalised research career development plan so you can deliver excellence at Essex and beyond.

Core areas of practice

The framework is informed by key areas of practice that have been identified by researchers at Essex. The framework consists of four core areas of research practice:

  • enhancing professional skills
  • securing resources for research
  • managing and leading research projects
  • public engagement, knowledge exchange and impact
