Research Capability – Supporting your research career journey

Being the number one University for research doesn’t happen by accident. The University of Melbourne has enhanced its researcher support to build a culture of research excellence. This panel will focus on two major initiatives:  The Research Gateway and the Researcher Development Unit.

The Research Gateway supports grad researchers through to senior career researchers to access research support services and resources.

The University Researcher Development Unit [RDU] supports the co-ordination, delivery and evaluation of programs for whole-of-career researcher development. Working in partnership with Academic Divisions and other professional development providers, such as the Melbourne CSHE, Scholarly Services  – the RDU will facilitate the design and delivery of new University-wide programs and the expansion of existing programs.
