TYPES OF RESEARCH POSTS THAT I OFFER Back to home page
In common with most other universities the types of research posts that I offer are:
Research Fellow (RF).
To be recruited to this grade the applicant would have a PhD. The Research Fellow would normally carry out some teaching and thus make some time for me to work on the research. My charge for this to my client (including overheads) would be approximately £50,000 pa.
Research Assistant (RA)
The associates receive a salary and would normally have a very good first degree. They may have a PhD (and be a post-doctoral RA) but note that if they do not they cannot be registered full time to get one. My charge for this to my client (including overheads) would be approximately £25,000 pa.
Research Student (RS).
The student is only paid basic living expenses and would be a graduate and is registered full time for a PhD. My charge for this to my client would be approximately £12,000 pa (£7000 bursary, £3000 fees and £2000 travel, equipment etc.). Note that this figure assumes that an EU student is recruited, the fees are higher for "overseas" students and the cost would be approximately £4000 higher. THESE FIGURES ARE APPROXIMATE. FOR DETAILS OF THE CURRENT FEE LEVELS PLEASE CONTACT THE UNIVERSITY.
