Human Resources for Research Staff

Welcome to the Human Resources Research Staff home page.

As staff of Trinity College Dublin, Researchers are welcome to access all our policies, schemes and programmes (subject to normal eligibility criteria). We invite you to look through our webpages.

Some items which may be of particular interest to you:

  • The Research Supervisors Development Programme is jointly hosted and developed by the Office of the Dean of Graduate Studies, Trinity College Dublin; Academic Practice (CAPSL); and Graduate Studies, University College Dublin. 

These workshops are aimed at research supervisors new to their role, from across the disciplines, as well as more experienced supervisors who wish to share and expand their knowledge and experience. The aim of the programme is to prepare and support research staff in their roles as supervisors. It clarifies key institutional regulations and practices, and highlights the changing role of universities and supervisors in the area of graduate supervision. It discusses roles, expectations and responsibilities of the research supervisor, and acknowledges the challenges of research supervision and the accompanying examination process.

We would like to draw your attention to the workshops taking place in February and March in Trinity.
