Research and knowledge exchange

Researcher Community

The Research Staff community at Sussex consists of approximately 400 Researchers employed on research-only contracts spread across all Schools.

To support this community, the RSO:

  • Creates the “Sussex Researcher” - a monthly newsletter full of interesting and useful information relevant for research-staff – particularly those working on fixed term contracts
  • Organises networking and community building events for the entire community
  • Works with Research Staff Representatives to develop and deliver specific in-School or in-Department community events
  • Provides a platform where Research Staff can begin to showcase their diverse research and achievements - the "Spotlight" on Researchers
