    Are you ready to be a part of the Next Generation Research SuperVision Project (RSVP)? Transforming Doctoral Education and Supervision Culture

    What's RSVP all about?

    RSVP is a groundbreaking, four-year initiative funded by Research England and supported by the UK's top research councils, Wellcome Trust, and the Crick Institute. Led by Dr. Karen Clegg and Professor Doug Cleaver, our consortium includes prestigious institutions like the University of York, University of Nottingham, King's College London, Coventry University, and the UK Council for Graduate Education.

    We're partnering with industry giants such as Unilever, GSK, the BBC, and the Royal Shakespeare Company to shape the future of research supervision. RSVP explores and supports various aspects of research supervision, including team supervision, different disciplines, diverse research degrees, and combating poor supervision practices.

    Your Role: Resource and Researcher Developer

    As a Resource and Researcher Developer, you will create user friendly digital resources and learning materials to be used by research supervisors and graduate schools. You will also facilitate workshops for supervisors and ‘train the trainer' sessions. Your collaboration with the Admin and Communications Manager will ensure these resources are easily accessible through the web and social media.

    Your work is pivotal in supporting professional development interventions, workshops, communities of practice, and supervision observations at universities across the UK and beyond. You'll work directly with our partner organisations and play a key role in achieving project outcomes.

    Your Responsibilities

  • Create accessible and attractive digital resources
  • Develop and deliver supervisor workshops
  • Ensure online accessibility and presence
  • Collaborate with partner institutions
  • Drive culture change in doctoral education
  • For informal enquiries : please contact Karen Clegg ([email protected])

    The University strives to be diverse and inclusive – a place where we can ALL be ourselves.

    We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the University.

    We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
