Ever wondered what could make your research life easier, how to navigate grants-speak, or build a good professional profile?
Maybe you’re thinking of your first major research project with fear and loathing?
The Research Whisperer is a blog dedicated to the topic of doing research in academia. We’re here to help and encourage.
- We are not a ‘how to’ guide to doing research, but we are happy to dish out practical tips and techniques that work for us.
- We don’t want to talk just about funding. Being a successful researcher involves much more than that, and calls on a wide range of skills.
- We want to stimulate conversations, so our posts will be opinionated, hopefully constructive, and sometimes exploratory.
We expect that a fair number of our posts will be driven by your questions and interests, so please feel free to share them through our feedback page.

We would like to know how you are using our material, just out of interest, so feel free to drop us a line or include the link in the comments section attached to the feedback page.
