This site is for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in the Faculties of Environment, Mathematics and Physical Sciences and Engineering (The EME Hub) which provides access to training and development opportunities specifically for you. Our extensive course programme covers a wide range of topics and skills such as: research methodologies and data management; techniques for information search and organisation; personal effectiveness and professionalism throughout the research process; strategy, project planning and management; ethics and intellectual property; good communications with a wide range of audiences for your research and career management skills.

All available events can be booked via a simple to use online booking system. You decide what training you need and access it here.

Good all-round skills are key to doing effective research and to being a successful research professional.

Here you’ll find the resources, including information on training and development events to help you thrive and get where you want to go. 


An invite from Leeds University Union...

LUU would like to invite you to participate in a focus group. We’d like to discuss:

• Welcome talks – are we talking to you about the things you need to know?
• Website content and directory – what do you want/need to know from us?
• Health and advice – how can our Student Advice Centre support you by talking about life skills, help with broader areas of support, and what barriers do you face in accessing out advice?

Date: Friday 31st July
Time: 2pm – 3.30pm
Location: Room A, Leeds University Union

You’ll receive £10 for your time, and will have the opportunity to help shape LUU’s engagement with PGT and PGR students for the next academic year.

If you’re free to attend please contact Hannah Goddard on by 12pm Wednesday 29th July.

Did you know that you are now required to deposit your research outputs?

Follow this link for further information

You must observe two important policies if you are an active researcher at the University:

The HEFCE open access policy states that journal articles and conference papers must be deposited in an open access repository within three months of acceptance for publication, to be eligible for the next REF.

Any such output submitted to REF that does not meet this requirement will be given an unclassified score and will not be assessed, unless any of the deposit, access or technical exceptions in the policy document apply.

See HEFCE's frequently asked questions on their open access policy.
