PI Management Responsibilities

There are many aspects to the role of Principal Investigator, one of which is staff management. This aspect includes the support, development, welfare, performance management and safety of PDRAs. The University holds the Human Resources Excellence in Research Award (HRER), demonstrating our commitment to the Concordat to support the career development of researchers, an agreement between the funders and employers of research staff in the UK that sets out clear standards that research staff can expect from the university that employs them.

This guidance booklet provides you with a clear outline of your responsibilities as a PI in the management and development of your research staff, in line with the Concordat and contains some practical tips to enable you to effectively manage and support the development of your research staff.
