Academic Training

The Leeds NIHR BRC aspires to be the workplace of choice for our research community, committed to developing and supporting an inclusive, multi-professional workforce that drives world-leading research, embedded in an environment where individuals are supported and encouraged to achieve their full potential. We will provide an environment which promotes a positive research culture through valuing and rewarding collaboration,
interdisciplinary working, respect, wellbeing and supporting both personal and peer development.
This will build on our existing capabilities, we will develop an infrastructure to support researchers from a wide range of professions, specialisms, ethnic and social backgrounds, and levels of research readiness.
