Early career researcher workshops

To meet the development and training needs of early career researchers and research staff we offer a bespoke programme.

Being an early career researcher at Surrey: The unofficial guide

We will endeavor to meet all new research staff when they arrive at Surrey for a short chat about how we can best support you.

During this meeting you will receive a copy of "Being an Early Career Researcher at Surrey. The Unofficial Guide."  If you are already at Surrey and would like to meet with a member of the RDP team then please request a one-to-one appointment.

Please see below for RDP events and other selected events provided by other teams across the university.  View a full list of the learning and development opportunities available to all staff here.
