Becoming a Research-Oriented Professor

20 November – 2 March 2021 Webinar Zoom
  • Friday 20 November
  • Wednesday 13 January
  • Tuesday 2 March

Our newly launched 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).  

The final session of the programme on Research Funding will take place remotely via Zoom on the 2nd March from 14:00 - 17:00. 

There will be opportunity for debate and dialogue with these leading scholars and delegates are invited to share questions in advance if they wish for the panel to consider. 

Upon completion of the programme, you will receive a certificate confirming successful participation. 

Aims & Objectives

Mid-career is defined as the time after one has mastered the fundamentals of what is required for effectiveness, is ready to seek the next set of challenges……before one starts to prepare for retirement (Baldwin et al., 2014). 

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.

  1. To provide targeted support for mid-career academics who wish to progress to a leadership/ management role in research knowledge and intellectual growth (A2, D2 and E2 of the BAM Framework)
  2.  To offer insight and guidance on writing for publication strategies, including generating impact from published work.  Topics include: crafting your research identity; building your publication pipeline and providing effective and humane leadership in your field.
  3. To offer a platform for sharing best practice in generating research funding, including where to target, how to craft your bid, leading others and networking, delivering your research project.
  4. To share and draw out best practice in leading and managing others, achieving success, and research/ intellectual growth

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