Making the move from working with others on research projects to managing and directing your own independently funded programme requires more than just an excellent research record. Our research has shown that new principal investigators are concerned with management issues: time, staff and funding being the major hurdles.
This two day residential course for new and aspiring Principal Investigators will enable you to explore these issues by working through a series of real life examples to develop a personal plan for managing your first research group.

Key areas

  • To identify personal strengths, weaknesses, values and motivations
  • Examine a variety of leadership styles
  • To envision and realise a direction and profile for their laboratory
  • Learn practical techniques to prioritise and manage your time successfully
