5. Grading

Is Grading required?

NO: if replacement post or academic/research post.

YES: if new or revised non academic post. Send completed job description to HR for matching/evaluation.

Support posts will need to be graded formally, but your HR team will be able to advise on appropriate grades before you start the process.

Research Staff

Role profiles have been developed to assist with grading.

Candidates without a PhD will be appointed below the bar on grade F. It is possible to request funding at a higher level to provide opportunities for more senior researchers.
