Kathy Barrett
University Lead for Research Staff Development

My role is to manage the Centre for Research Staff Development at King’s, overseeing the programme of courses and the liaison with research staff networks.

I also work with the management of King’s to ensure implementation of the Concordat and the HR Excellence in Research Award.


I have come to this role from an academic position as a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the life sciences via being a Careers Consultant for researchers and students at UCL, SOAS and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.


In both these roles I have been very drawn to ensuring that researchers have plenty of opportunities to develop not only their research skills but also an appreciation of the other requirements for planning a successful career, something I am enjoying continuing at King’s.
