Code of Practice for the Management and Career Development of Research Staff

The Institute for Academic Development (IAD) has rewritten the ‘Code of Practice'.

The Code of Practice provides guidance on how the researcher’s employment with the University, the progress of their research, and their professional and career development should be managed. It aims to identify the specific responsibilities in the management process that fall to the researcher, their manager and the institution and encourages regular discussion at various stages of the process.

The document is shorter and more succinct and has been split into sections reflecting the key stages, including:

  • Regulations and Procedures
  • Formal Meetings
  • Training and Development
  • Career Progression

The Code of Practice was developed by academic research staff of the University, to support the management and development of all researchers. This document is a revised version of the Code of Practice first published in 2008.
