Researchers14

The Postdoc Academy is a founding member of Researchers14 – a group of UK universities interested in promoting and developing provision for postdoctoral researchers.

Together, these universities represent 65% of the research staff community in the UK. 

With this group of researchers as its sole focus, Researchers14 provides a strategic view of the people, culture and issues surrounding this researcher community, and shares good practice in researcher development.

 

UK Research Staff Association (UKRSA)

The UKRSA is a group of research staff representatives from a broad range of UK universities, acting as a collective voice for research staff.

Established in 2010, they aim to support the careers of research staff and to promote interactions between researchers in different institutions. The mission of the association is to “empower research staff to take control of their career, and contribute to policy”.

The association is supported by Vitae.
