Induction at the University of Nottingham takes place on three levels: University, School/Departmental and Personal. As part of the University induction, the Graduate School have developed a half-day induction for research staff (see section below).

Research staff induction

The aim of this session is to help new and relatively new research staff understand and integrate into the wider research culture of the University. It will also introduce you to the range of research professional and personal development available to researchers and provide an opportunity to network with colleagues and to meet key university staff involved in supporting researchers.

The session will provide:

  • a summary of the research culture and environment at the University of Nottingham
  • an overview of current national and university research strategies and policies and their relevance to your role and responsibilities as a member of research staff
  • an introduction to the professional services and personal development opportunities available to researchers at the University of Nottingham
  • an opportunity to meet other new and more established research staff, share experiences and join faculty and inter-disciplinary researcher networks

Please check Central Short Courses to find out more about the research staff induction sessions.
