SRUK/CERU Mentoring Programme

Success in building a research career does not exclusively depend on having a good career track record. Along your career-building path, it is necessary to acquire additional skills and expertise to wisely plan your next steps, get to know other experts in and out of your field, and learn how to manage and/or collaborate with students, colleagues and collaborators. This may seem difficult when you have just arrived in a new country or do not know enough about the available resources or the next steps in your career. In addition, at some stage, most researchers face the dilemma of whether to follow the “traditional” path in academia or to venture into the private sector or new research-related alternatives.

At SRUK/CERU, we know about the issues faced by Spanish researchers when developing their research careers in the United Kingdom. Therefore, we have designed this scheme to help and support them to maximize their opportunities and plan a successful career path.

The SRUK/CERU Mentoring Programme benefits from the diverse range of members’ skills and fields of expertise and their previous working experience in the British, Spanish, and other international systems.
