This course, in a couple of hours, will help you understand all the building blocks needed for research success. Each video is accompanied by an exercise to help you apply your learning to your research situation.

What topics will you cover?

Lecture 1: Introduction

Lecture 2: Successful researcher roadmap: the canvas

Lecture 3: Successful researcher roadmap: the inner researcher

Lecture 4: Successful researcher roadmap: the outer researcher

The tutorials are supportive and helpful – Emma walks you through the sections whilst also encouraging you to really think for yourself and explore but in a scaffolded way so you aren’t left floundering. This is a motivating and inspiring course to really look in-depth at the fundamentals of your research project and career and is definitely not just another go-through-the-motions tool.

Hello! I'm Emma.

I love coffee. I love science. And I love working with early career researchers to help them get the very best out of their careers.
Poacher turned game keeper? I have certainly been there and worn the lab coat! I enjoy the challenge of working with sparky, bright people which is why I have worked in and around universities as a researcher, staff developer and consultant for over 25 years. At ease with both STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) researchers and those in professional services, I have worked with universities in the UK and overseas. I am a co-author of "What every postdoc needs to know" aimed at those experiencing the tricky early career research years.
I have drawn all my experience together as a facilitator, coach, consultant and women's development trainer to create UNIque - a programme for university women and the Successful Researcher Roadmap online courses.
