Research Staff Working Group

The Research Staff Working Group is the University committee that oversees the delivery of support and professional development provision for research staff.


The Research Staff Working Group uses the University's Strategic Plan and the principles of the UK Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers as a framework to inform developments to University policy and practice to enhance the experiences and support for Sussex researchers.

The Research Staff Working Group reports to both the University’s Research and Knowledge Exchange and Human Resources Committees.
