Sussex University has been shortlisted for a Times Higher Education Award in the category of ‘Outstanding Support for Early-Career Researchers’ for ‘Profolio’ a career development programme used by doctoral students.

Gill Johnston and Helen Hampson, from the Teaching and Learning Development unit, and Catherine Reynolds, from the Career Development and Employment Centre, have developed this programme to complement career development workshops for research students. Each student enrolled on the programme creates a personal online researcher profile, which they can use to promote their own research and is also given a pendrive to save and manage evidence of research and career development.

The winners of the Times Higher Education Awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on 23 October.
