New to CU?
Welcome to the C. U. Shah University, Wadhwan, and congratulations on your appointment as a research scholar. You will be joining a community of around 1000 research staff across the University who make an invaluable contribution to our position as one of the best places in the world to do research.

Our research works across a spectrum of disciplines, combining different methodologies and expertise to maintain our history of ground-breaking work. Personal and Professional Development As a researcher a lot of your 'professional development' will involve publishing papers, attending conferences, and acquiring the skills you need to do your research well. But it is also important to think about other areas beyond your research itself. Do you need to gain teaching experience? Could you run a conference or symposium to develop your project and budget management skills? Could you help write a research project/fellowship application? Might be attending a workshop on time management will perhaps help you do your job better? Being proactive about these other aspects of being a researcher will make your CV stand out when you apply for your next step, whatever that is. Research in focus We have around 300 active researchers at the CU. Our priority themes and multidisciplinary research networks bring these researchers together with practitioners, policy makers and NGOs to create academic communities which focus on key issues and challenges.
