Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training
At some point during your graduate study, your funding may be allocated from a government research grant. Many such grants now require that students undertake formal instruction in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). This term refers to the code of ethical conduct generally agreed by experienced scientists to be the proper guide to behavior in the research arena.
In accordance with the RCR requirement, CITI on-line training module is available for Princeton students and postdocs. It is advisable you complete the RCR Training as soon as possible and notify Polly of your training completion. You will need to complete this training only once during your five years of studies at Princeton, and there is no fee for this course. This certification may also be valid during any future postdoc positions.
Please enter the training via the following link, and take the "Physical sciences students and researchers" course.
