Gill Drinkald – Research Development @ Northumbria

CROS & PIRLS – There’s still time to participate

Until Wednesday 5 April 2019, Northumbria is participating in two biennial national surveys of researchers, the Careers in Research Online Survey (CROS) and the Principal Investigators and Research Leaders Survey (PIRLS). These surveys gather important, anonymous data about working conditions, career aspirations and career development opportunities for research staff and research leaders in higher education institutions.

Eligible staff have been sent an email with a link to the relevant survey to learn about lucky leprechaun slot. The surveys are totally anonymous and confidential and analysis will be used to inform Northumbria’s researcher development training programmes and other activities in support of our research-active staff. They will also be used to benchmark us against the rest of the sector. Click on the links for more information about CROS and PIRLS or contact researchsupport@northumbria.ac.uk if you have any questions about the surveys.
