Research support for academic staff

Training, resources and research grant application information for staff.

The staff intranet is the home of Research Office support for academic staff.

On the intranet you can find information about funding, professional development, REF and more.

Research Office (Intranet)

Research grant application support

We offer intensive support to individuals and teams developing strategic research grant applications. We assist with: 

  • Setting deadlines
  • Liaising with internal departments and external partners (if applicable)
  • Offering associated financial assistance

We aim to maximise the applicant's chances of success and make sure we only submit the highest quality bids. Post-award support is also provided from contracting to expenditure monitoring.

Research Funding (Intranet)

Staff training and development

We recognise the development needs of staff vary depending on the stage of career and area of research. We are also aware that a key set of personal and professional skills underpin all successful research careers.

Our continuing professional development (CPD) programme is coordinated by the Research Office. It offers a range of development opportunities for our academic community.

Training is delivered by School Research Leads and our most experienced researchers. An overview of the 2022/23 CPD programme is available to download below.
