Researcher development

Our culture of innovation, strong community and outstanding facilities will help you achieve your research ambitions.

Research excellence HR Excellence In Research

We are committed to supporting and developing the careers of our researchers and our commitment has been recognised since 2010 when we first received the EU HR Excellence in Research award. We retained the award in 2016 and are currently undergoing our 8 year review.

In AY2018/19 we are launching our Research Promotion Framework, allowing contract research staff at grades 4,5 and 6 to apply for promotion to the grade above.

We engage with sector wide surveys such as CROS and PIRLS to ensure Edinburgh Napier remains a great place to work, with the feedback from these surveys feeding into policy development and tailored support for our research community.

Research Development Framework Vitae - Researcher Professional development

Using Vitae's Researcher Development Framework as the underpinning structure we have designed a series of events that help Edinburgh Napier University researchers develop as rounded researchers. Full information on our development programmes can be found on the staff intranet.

Find yourself an area of work that you can get fascinated and passionate about.
