Research Staff Workshops

To meet the development and training needs of early career researchers and research staff we have a system of offering training as outlined below.
1. Four times a year (February, May, August, November) we send out an email with a menu of the training we offer
2. Researchers reply marking the topics/workshops that interest them
3. We then send out a ‘Doodle poll’ to the people who have shown interest in the topic/workshop
4. The date that is most convenient to the most people is set, and the session is advertised for anyone else who would like to attend
