Addendum to Appointments Procedure
Categories of Staff
Whereas, for convenience, the Appointments Procedure categorises staff under various headings, under the University Statutes, staff fall under two general categories:
Academic Staff includes Professors, Lecturers and Research Staff of the University and such other classes of persons as the Senate may, from time to time, determine. A ‘Lecturer’ includes Readers, Senior Lecturers, Senior Teaching Fellows and Teaching Fellows. The term ‘Research Staff’ includes Research Fellows, Senior Research Officers, Research Officers and Research Assistants.
Support staff means the members of the staff of the University, who are not academic staff, and includes academic-related, clerical, operational and technical staff.
The Procedure sets out in Section 2 how staff are categorised for the purposes of the Procedure.
