This book arises out of the work of the Emerging Researcher Programme at UCT and follows on an earlier publication. Designed as a tool for emerging researchers and their mentors, it provides strategies for research growth in areas such as understanding the relationship between teaching and research; obtaining higher degrees; producing peer-reviewed research output; generating and managing research funding; effective research planning; engaging in interdisciplinary research; and postgraduate supervision.

rr2014Research 2014-2015 is now available online. Read about research highlights from the year including radio telescopes and gamma rays, fighting TB, reviving extinct languages, genetic diversity in baboons, culture and the constitution in SA, and the plant that is rarer than rhino but just as prized by poachers.

Thursday 3 September saw the commencement of the annual PhD Breakaway, a collaborative program of workshops, seminars and panel discussions aimed at breaching the loneliness of the PhD journey through fostering a sense of community. Amina Adam (Research Commons Librarian) and Theresa Schoeman (Marketing Librarian) from UCT libraries were also in attendance advocating the many services that UCT libraries has to offer to postgraduate students.
