2016 Women into Research

Following on from a successful Women into Research seminar series in 2015, we are happy to introduce the 2016 series to encourage more women, at different levels in their career, to contribute to the success of the university through research, publications and Research Excellence Framework (REF) submissions. Women Into Research have set-up a number of seminars and learning events designed to explore facilitators and barriers associated with women pursuing research in their particular areas. Seminars and learning events will be facilitated by research active academics, who pursue research as part of their role at work. The seminars and discussions will concentrate on the practicalities of doing research, alongside other academic duties. Consideration of personal, intersubjective, institutional and external effects on women researchers will be addressed. We will try to understand how, where and by whom facilitators can be improved, to encourage more women to take up the mantle of becoming research active, including attracting internal and external funding, publishing, being a part of the Research Excellence Framework submission process and of course enhance personal development and promotion. The trajectory of the sessions will be a research ‘start to finish’ format to illustrate how research active academics can succeed in balancing the many competing demands in their roles at the university, while fulfilling their full potential leading to, we hope, a more successful academic career, more effective research led teaching and contribution to the reputation of the university.
