Annual Promotions for Research Only Staff 2023
As a signatory to the Concordat to support the career development of researchers, Edinburgh Napier recognises the importance of providing structured career progression opportunities for staff on research only contracts.
We are now inviting applications from research only staff at grade 4 and above for promotion. There is no cap on the number of promotions that can be awarded.
Applicants should note that there is now a requirement to have a minimum of one year's service at Edinburgh Napier, prior to the closing date for applications.
If you are considering applying for promotion, the first thing you should do is talk to your Dean of School. An application for promotion will require a significant amount of effort and by talking to your Dean, line manager and trusted mentors, you can make a realistic assessment of your readiness for promotion before investing a lot of time in preparing your application. If you do decide to apply, please confirm this with the promotions team as early as possible.
Your Worktribe profile is part of the
application process so make sure it’s up to date. Potential applicants should
book time by emailing RIE at RMSadmin@napier.ac.uk
well in advance of the closing date to make sure
their Worktribe CV profiles are up to date and displaying correctly.
Further advice on how to prepare your Worktribe profile is available HERE or in the Guidance
for Applicants – see list of documentation below.
Preparing and submitting your application
Applications will be assessed against the Promotions Framework for Researchers.
Applications will be assessed against the Academic Appointments and Promotions Framework by a panel made up of professors from Edinburgh Napier and other UK universities. The Panel is chaired by the Principal and is meeting on 15th June 2023.
Within 14 days of the panel meeting, applicants will receive an outcome letter and written feedback from the panel. Unsuccessful applicants will also be offered a face-to-face meeting with a panel member and their Dean of School.
