Pure researcher profile

Creating a research profile is important for postgraduate researchers. The University of Manchester uses an electronic system called Pure to help researchers promote their profile via the University of Manchester Research Explorer. The online profile will showcase your research outputs or achievements such as publication, awards, internship, membership of professional bodies, prizes and help you engage with potential employer or collaborator. To start creating your Pure profile, please go to Pure and log in using your University username and password. For additional support with Pure, please see Pure guides for postgraduate research students.
