Contract Research Staff
For those just embarking on postdoctoral employment, this period in your career marks an opportunity to expand the range of your research skills, develop your supervisory abilities and crystallise your career plans. As such, postdoctoral research staff (known as Contract Research Staff or CRS in some Schools), Teaching Fellows and Early Career Academics (Research Fellows) can share many concerns about their career progression and role within the academic world.
This section deals with some of those concerns, and provides links to support and development opportunities available through Careers and other University departments. This is in line with the University’s commitment to maintaining the European Commission's HR Excellence in Research Award, and by extension the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers.
