"Researchy" objectives for Professional Development Reviews

The following is a list of suggestions of objectives that staff (both research-active and not) might want to include in their PDR.

Depending on individual circumstances, you may want to include 2-5 of these in your objectives for the year. Remember that SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) objectives are often easier to achieve.

For research-active staff

For all staff

For those managing researchers

For those leading research groups/teams
