Responsible Conduct of Research training Dec. 7

Responsible Conduct of Research training will be offered via Zoom on Thursday, Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. RCR is a required training for undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers supported by National Science Foundation awards.

RCR training covers core norms, principles, regulations, and rules governing the practice of research. RCR is a highly recommended “best practices” course for those desiring to deepen their knowledge of ethical research and responsible conduct. It is also an excellent professional opportunity for anyone interested in furthering a career in research.

This particular workshop fulfills the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health requirements for formal RCR instruction. It is an NIH requirement that all BLaST Mentors, Scholars, UREs, and other funded projects participate in RCR training. UAFs RCR training is open to all UAF-, UAS- and Ilisagvik-affiliated individuals (faculty, graduate students, staff, and undergraduates).

This training is a two-part training. Part one requires you to complete an online CITI Training module and part two requires you to participate in RCR training. You must complete both parts to receive your RCR certificate. Email Carla McCain with the Office of Research Integrity to sign up!
