What is an RSA?
Research staff associations are researcher-led groups or organisations that provide support for new and existing researchers.
Research staff are in a unique position to inform and develop the skills and knowledge base within their institutions. They can provide a focal point for their institutions to engage with on research staff issues and initiatives. Examples of areas where research staff may contribute within their Institutions are:
- Informing institutional policy through representation on local committees covering areas such as working conditions, professional development and career opportunities
- Facilitating the organisation of training activities or career development sessions for other researchers
- Ensuring that the provisions introduced by employers deliver to research staff and are tailored to their needs.
