Access for researchers to email/e-resources after end of employment contracts

19 Dec 2012

A pilot scheme with researchers at The University of Manchester.

The Research Staff Association and the University are launching a pilot scheme for prolonging access to email accounts and e-resources beyond the termination of research employment contracts.

The scheme is designed to allow unemployed researchers to prepare for interviews, finalise manuscripts from their work, and more generally to maintain contact with the research and teaching community. The pilot is sponsored by the Associate Vice-President for Research, Professor Matt Lambon Ralph.

The pilot will include research staff with employment contracts linked to finite funding, leaving the University between mid-January 2013 and mid-May 2013. The extended access will initially run for 6 weeks after which the researcher will be able to request a further extension.

More information

More information will be available in the next issue of Incite (beginning of January 2013) and in letters to research staff accompanying the HR letter you receive one month before the end of your contract.
