Staff are employed under fixed-term contracts (FTCs) when the nature of their position or work is for a recognised finite period or where a specific amount of funding or a grant has been made available for the purpose of employment for a defined period. The majority of University Research staff are employed on this basis.
The renewal and extension of existing FTCs are processed through our on-line system on Queen's On-Line (QOL). We will remind you, in a timely fashion, of the necessary requirements associated with the renewal or otherwise of a FTC.
