Research staff

The duties of each appointment are as specified by the College Dean/Head of Service and summarised in the appropriate role profile. Duties may be varied from time to time to reflect the needs of the University.

Research staff may be requested to do some teaching/demonstrating averaging not more than six hours per week during normal working hours (this time to include all preparation, teaching time, marking and contact with students). Teaching/demonstrating carried out within normal hours will not carry any additional remuneration and the agreed time will be allowed by the supervisor from research duties. However, where there is a requirement from the individual to work outside their normal hours to make up for the time spent on teaching/demonstrating, then they will be additionally remunerated at the appropriate standard teaching rate for these hours. The aforementioned is subject to any specific terms and conditions attached to awards from grant-awarding bodies.
