Research and Enterprise policies

City expects staff and students to seek to maintain the highest achievable standards in their research conduct. This page outlines key policies that staff should be familiar with before they engage in Research and Enterprise related activities.



Policies relating to employment of research staff

City has in place policies and practices to support members of staff who are employed on research staff terms and conditions. The terms and conditions of employment for research staff at City are identical to those for academic staff in many respects but there are aspects where the nature of employment and roles requires some distinction.

City has therefore produced a Guidance document on research staff employment matters to support School managers and Principal Investigators responsible for research staff appointments. There is also established policy on the grading of research staff and an agreed mechanism for considering applications for bridging funding for research staff. These documents are all available via the Human Resources webpages on the staff hub (City log-in required). Further information can be accessed in the documents listed below.
