In April 2021, the University launched the Research Staff Hub, in line with our commitments to the Researcher Development Concordat.
The mission of the Research Staff Hub is to welcome, support and equip researchers and teaching staff employed by the Collegiate University on fixed term contracts, in ways that will enable them to be and feel their best at Oxford, and to facilitate their chosen next career chapter. The Hub’s work is supported by a network of early career and postdoctoral researchers in the faculties and departments of the Humanities Division. These representatives meet termly with officers of the Humanities Division and the Academic Advocate for Research Staff. Additionally, two nominated researchers represent Humanities interests on the Research Staff Consultative Group, a cross-Divisional forum supporting researcher development activities across the University, including the Research Staff Hub. To find out more about this, contact Caroline Thurston, our Researcher Training and Development Manager: email@example.com.
The Concordat seeks to create the healthy and supportive culture needed to ensure our researchers are given every opportunity to thrive and realise their potential in the increasingly diverse, mobile and global environment in which we work.
