Research Staff Office (RSO)

The Research Staff Office coordinates university-wide provision and support for research staff

Research Staff Office mission statement

Our mission is three-fold – to support our Research Staff:

- Individually: providing personal, professional and career development support so that each person can identify and pursue their optimal career path

- As a community: enabling and encouraging research staff to network, share experiences, and learn from each other

- Strategically: working at a University and sector level to articulate and champion the specific issues facing research staff, and contribute to and implement policy to address them

We hope you find this web site useful - please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.

In addition to the above support, the Research Staff Office also provides information for research staff managers and PIs to enable them to support their staff effectively which can be found in the webpage featured below.
