The RED (Researcher Education and Development) team supports all researchers at La Trobe University - whether you're a graduate researcher, an Early Career Researcher (ECR), or other academic staff. 

If you want to know all there is to know about what's going on in the researcher education and development space at the University, here's what you need to do:

1. Bookmark the RED workshops page - the page features all the sessions RED offers, plus those presented by partner La Trobe University teams and units. These include the Library, Digital Research, the Research Impact team, Business Development and Commercialisation, Research Office, and the Research Platforms.

2. Sign up to Graduate Research Scholar, a fortnightly newsletter compiled the Library in collaboration with RED that features workshops, special events, resources, training, tips, and news relevant to La Trobe Uni researchers.

3. Subscribe to this blog! Email and put "Subscribe me to RED Alert" in the subject line. You'll be added to the blog mailing list and have fresh posts delivered straight to your Inbox.

4. Follow us on Twitter (@LTUresearchers). This is a great way to know about and access online chats, workshop reminders, what's happening in research at La Trobe Uni, livetweets of research events, and relevant links to good stuff on academic writing, publishing, grants, and being a researcher. Really, what doesn't this stream do?

5. 'Like' us on Facebook - our page is La Trobe Researchers. This is a good way to have us in your everyday Facebook browsing, if that's where you're most at home. You'll get to know about upcoming RED sessions, researcher development news, what's happening in research at La Trobe, and relevant links to good stuff on academic writing, publishing, grants, and being a researcher.

6. If you're an Early Career Researcher (ECR), you can join our Staff Researcher Development mailing list by subscribing here. An ECR is usually an academic who has been awarded their PhD and is within 5-7 years of the award year. Academic staff of any career stage who are interested in researcher development and feel they would gain value from RED opportunities are welcome to sign up.
