Vitae has been involved in the career and professional development of researchers for many years, gaining reputation as experts in this field. Vitae is currently exploring the feasibility of providing professional recognition for researcher development professionals including associate trainers and other university staff/professionals who have a role in developing researchers.
Researcher Developers at any stage of their career would be eligible to apply for recognition under three different categories: Associate, Fellow or Senior Fellow, and would use elements from the Vitae Career Framework for Researcher Developers (CFRD), established with sector consultation in 2012, to demonstrate the required competencies to achieve recognition.
Join in and help shape the future of Researcher Developer professional recognition by taking part in the survey before 16 February 2018.
