This chapter gives an extra dimension to the field of doctoral education, namely that of Human Resource Management. The introduction pinpoints why this perspective is needed in the changing context of higher education and details the importance of using a Human Resource (HR) strategy in order to develop a doctoral education unit within the structure of the institution as a whole. This will be utilized for a job description and specification of professionals in doctoral education, using survey and qualitative data obtained from the PRIDE project. Some concluding remarks underscore the importance of moving from an HR strategy to HR development, which will be detailed in Chapter IV.
