Research staff across varying career stages are encouraged to share their views about their experiences of being researchers in UK Higher Education.
The Culture, Employment and Development in Academic Research Survey – (CEDARS) will provide valuable information on how we can create a healthy and supportive research culture to ensure our researchers can thrive at the University. The deadline for responses is Friday 22nd May.
We want to hear from staff of all career levels who are active researchers, including teaching staff engaged in research and those staff who have formal research staff management/ research supervision responsibilities. Staff can access the survey here: https://liverpool.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/cedars20
The deadline for responses is 23:59 on Friday, 22 May.
How participants can benefit
CEDARS is based on a standard question set to allow for benchmarking with other institutions and longitudinal comparison. It also provides valuable data for measuring progress in implementation of the University’s Action Plan for the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers. The surveys are also crucial to achieving and maintaining the HR Excellence in Research Award which is reported in REF Units of Assessment and our institutional environment statements.
The Academy and Research & Impact Strategy Team are pleased to announce that for each respondent who completes a survey, a £1 donation will be made to the Liv to Give charities for 2020. The total amount will be split equally between the charities.
Further to this, for each week that the survey is open, those respondents that wish to will be entered into a draw for a £20 Lovetoshop voucher.
Any queries about CEDARS should be directed to Saneeya.Qureshi@liverpool.ac.uk
Follow @LivUniAcademy and @LivResearcher for updates and information about research staff development opportunities.
CEDARS is managed by Vitae, an international programme dedicated to supporting the professional and career development of researchers.
