Faculty-facing staff

Please note that all RDS staff are currently working from home but should still be contactable unless their out of office says otherwise. All out of offices will give an alternative contact. Please do not email generic RDS addresses as this means >30 people will unnecessarily receive your email. Thank you.

RDS has a number of posts that are Faculty-facing (Research Facilitators, Funding Development Officers and Project Officers). These staff members spend approximately 50% of their time based in their Faculty offices. The page provides information on when and where you can expect to find them when they are working in your Faculty. Some flexibility with these times is to be anticipated as staff may be attending Faculty meetings, etc. Descriptions of roles are provided at the bottom of the page.
