Discovering stars: growing research leaders.

Tania Tambiah - Associate Director (Research Development), RMIT University, Australia

Excellent research leadership is critical for an institution to be a recognised player in the research ecosystem. However, it is a time consuming exercise to achieve. The College of Business, RMIT University, Australia, recognising the need for enhancing the capabilities of researchers as a strategic priority, launched a Developing Research Leaders Program in 2015. It is an innovative Program designed for early to mid-career researchers with demonstrated capacity, aspiration, and potential to achieve research excellence and become research leaders in their field. The aim is to strengthen the quality of research outcomes, enhance research excellence and the intellectual climate, and develop nationally and internationally recognised business research leaders and teams. This integrated program delivered as five distinct modules combines mentoring with professional development workshops and information, journey and networking sessions, and multi-disciplinary project work. The program modules are on research career strategy and planning, pitching for a research grant, publishing in top-tier journals, leading research, and research project management.
