University of Liverpool Research Staff Association

Research Staff at the University of Liverpool have established our very own Research Staff Association. This initiative is supported by The Leadership, Organisational, Staff and Academic Development Academy (The Academy) and the UK Research Staff Association (UKRSA).

The University of Liverpool Research Staff Association (UoL RSA) is a research community-owned and led initiative. Upon commencement of their contracts, research staff automatically become members of the UoL RSA.

The aims of the UoL RSA are to:

  • represent a collective voice for research staff from all Faculties, Schools and Institutes on matters affecting researchers
  • provide a platform for communication and networking amongst research staff both within the schools, institutes and across Faculties and the wider University community.
  • coordinate central support for researcher development with that provided locally by Faculties, schools and institutes
  • facilitate a borderless community for researchers to make the most of their time at the University of Liverpool
