Career Development of Research Staff Statement of Expectations

In response to feedback from Research Staff Forums, the Research Staff Strategy Group (RSSG) have developed a Career Development of Research Staff Statement of Expectations.

The statement sets out the expectations and mutual responsibility of research staff, PIs and the University with the aim of creating a supportive environment in which researchers are able to work and develop their careers. It will contribute to meeting the University’s commitment to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of our Researchers.

It is essential that both research staff and PIs are aware of their responsibilities and the opportunities for career support, training and development.

The Research Staff Strategy Group will review the statement on an annual basis and feedback. We are keen to hear from you! Please send comments to
