Researcher Mobility

You are here: Researcher Development Framework / Researcher Mobility


Researchers may wish to use this lens to: focus on how to be an effective researcher in different environments (international mobility, transdisciplinarity); identify how the skills and attributes they have developed through research can contribute to, or underpin their effectiveness in a new research environment; select areas that they need to develop to be more effective researchers and use this to inform development reviews; provide evidence of the transferability of their research skills in their CV, in job applications and at interviews. Researcher developers may wish to use this lens to demonstrate to researchers and other stakeholders how developing such skills can contribute towards the overall professional development of researchers; enable researchers to recognise the learning they have acquired through working in a new environment and highlight the transferability of these abilities.
