Researcher Surveys 2017

Research Staff Survey, and Principal Investigators and Research Leaders Survey 2017. Open from 29th March – 10th May 2017.

When will the surveys be running?

From 29th March – 10th May 2017 the IAD will be running two biennial national surveys.

Who can complete them?

Research Staff Survey: If you are a member of research staff, and employed primarily to conduct research, you should complete the research staff survey. This provides an opportunity to provide information on working conditions, careers aspirations and development opportunities from your perspective of working as a researcher at the University of Edinburgh.

Principal Investigators and Research Leaders Survey: If you are a Principal Investigator (PI) or principally responsible for setting the intellectual direction of research and are also personally responsible for the management of research staff and/or the supervision of postgraduate researchers then you should complete the Principal Investigators and Research Leaders Survey.

How do staff access them?

These surveys will launch on the 29th of March 2017 at the University of Edinburgh and if you are eligible for either of these then you should receive an email from the Institute for Academic Development, with a link to complete the survey. 

Please take part!
