Senior research staff

Senior research staff


RSIVs are senior and often very distinguished researchers, many of whom have the title of Professor. Appointments to this grade can only be approved by the University’s Senior Appointments Panel.

RSIV appointments are academic-related and the standard academic-related contract template should be used. The only difference is that none of the standard salary paragraphs apply since there is no incremental scale; instead a personal salary is applied. More information is provided on the University’s website.
