We're committed to helping you thrive in the world of research and produce work of the highest standard.
As a doctoral researcher at Sheffield Hallam, you'll have access to a range of training opportunities, research communities and support networks.
You'll also have access to our student support services for help with health, wellbeing and day-to-day campus life.
We’ll provide you with opportunities to develop a range of research, personal and professional skills during the course of your programme. Your development needs will be identified and jointly agreed with your supervisory team at the start of your research degree, and regularly reviewed and updated throughout your degree.
You can find out more about our current opportunities for doctoral researchers on the Doctoral School blog.
The researcher concordat
Sheffield Hallam supports the principles of the UK Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers. These include specific commitments to staff support and development.
- Researchers are equipped and supported to be adaptable and flexible in an increasingly diverse, mobile, global research environment.
- The importance of researchers' personal and career development, and lifelong learning, is clearly recognised and promoted at all stages of their career.
The concordat is closely aligned with the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for their Recruitment, allowing us to gain the European Commission's HR Excellence in Research Award. We have held the award since 2013.
