Our Research-Oriented Professor programme is designed to offer support and provide guidance for members of our community at mid-career stage for whom Research is a core element (speaks to Sections A2, D2 and E2 of the BAM Framework).

Although individuals at mid-career stage perform key roles for their institutions beyond, and represent the largest career group within our community, there has been limited support available in supporting colleagues who aspire to becoming a Professor with a particular focus on research.

The programme will explore the variety of career journeys, barriers and pivot points in a swiftly changing research policy and funding environment.

Who can attend?
