Regrading for research staff on grades 6 and 7

Researchers on grades 6 and 7 (Research Associate/Research Fellow I) can apply for progression to the next grade at any time by submitting an application to their Head of School. Similarly, the Head of School may initiate a proposal for these role-holders to progress to grade 7 or 8.

There is, additionally, an annual timetable for considering applications for regrading these staff.

Where a researcher is on the top point of grade 7, their position must be reviewed annually to consider their suitability for progression to grade 8.
