Research Fellow Title Procedure

The following procedure should be adopted in the event that a School wishes to re-designate an individual’s title to Research Fellow.

1. The Dean should prepare an outline case and discuss the proposal with the PVC(R) in the first instance. 

2. If the PVC(R) is broadly supportive of the proposal, then the individual should be asked to prepare a statement demonstrating the following:

  • The independence of their research evidenced by e.g. the lead role in the formation of research projects and the securing of external research funds

  • A research outputs track record that is comparable with norms for academic staff on the same grade

  • Their recognition within their research community

3. The PVC(R) will consider the submission and decide whether the title can be awarded. The title will not affect an individual’s grade and it should be noted that the title can only be awarded to those on grade 7 (Research Fellow) or grade 8 (Senior Research Fellow).  The PVC(R)’s decision is final.
