Research Staff Funding

There are two CAPOD funds open to Research Staff.

‌‌The Research Staff Rep Funding supports schools to set up networking and professional development activities. This fund is also open to Contract Teaching Fellows.

The Research Staff Development fund is intended for all research staff to attend external workshops, training events or conferences that provide professional development opportunities not available elsewhere within the University or that cannot be funded by the relevant school.
