For Group Heads

​Make the space for career development

  • Do you want to support your postdocs and PhD students with advancing their careers, but struggle to find an effective way to do it - let alone enough time?
  • ​Cultivate self-motivated postgraduates who complete PhDs on time and independent, productive postdocs who engage in their own career development.

If you supervise students or lead a research group, Career Control for Researchers is an ideal way to secure training in career planning for PhD students, and postdocs in the early years post-PhD.

This 8-week online career planning course equips all participating researchers with the essential information, tools and guidance they need to take ownership of their career direction and accelerate their progress.

Supervision and oversight

Career Control for Researchers is a fully outsourced training service and does not require direct ongoing involvement from sponsoring group heads or institutions. On request, however, supervisors and administrators can register as Program Leaders to have access to the course content and resources. Program Leaders can also access PostdocTraining's personal email advisory service, for support on any career-related matters raised with them by PhD students or postdocs.
