The College has a new process in which to formally recognise the valuable contribution that postdocs make towards the student supervisor partnership. Postdocs are defined as researcher staff:
- with a PhD or equivalent
- who are within the first 10 years (full-time equivalent) of their postdoctoral research activity (counted from viva date) - note that career breaks are allowed and will be accounted for.
- who are employed to undertake research commonly on an externally funded contract
Subject to completion of mandatory training requirements, postdocs can be recognised as Assistant Supervisors. The following documentation provides information on how to obtain formal recognition as an Assistant Supervisor:
Departments can find out which staff have completed the mandatory training required for Assistant Supervisors through a real-time report. To have access to this report, please contact Jorge Freire.
