Abstract 

While career researchers are key members of the university workforce, their developmental needs are sometimes neglected due to their work conditions and contexts. This paper explores the nature of career researcher work, suggesting that three key roles relate to strategic research, project management and the development of effective research teams are core elements of researcher roles. It outlines the key contributions, which may be made by early career researchers and project and research leaders. Using this framework, some issues relating to career researcher developmental needs are explored.

Keywords: Researcher development; research leadership; project management.
