Support for Researchers

Welcome to the Research Staff Hub

This site brings together information from across the University to support research staff to undertake their role, develop themselves and progress in their career.  There are also dedicated resources to help managers of researchers to support the research staff they employ. 

The University of Edinburgh has supported a major investment in developing research talent through two main routes, the Edinburgh Career Development Scheme and Chancellor's Fellows

If you are a PhD student or a member of technical staff you will also find useful information on these sites

IAD4Researchers blog is where we’ll share experiences, promote events and courses, including careers support, update on Concordat developments, and reflect on our work supporting researchers at all stages.
