Researcher Co-Investigator (Post Type not applicable on research proposals for AHRC and ESRC)

Background Information

A Researcher Co-Investigator is a post doctoral research assistant who merits appropriate recognition for making a significant contribution to the preparation of the proposal and the ensuing research. Note: for EPSRC this is > 50% of contracted hours.

This Post Type is a Directly Incurred Cost ie time spent on the project working on the project will be supported by an auditable record for its duration. When a person is contracted to work 100% of their time on a single project (whether they are working full-time or part-time) timesheets are not necessary. In all other cases, timesheets or project records are required.

Completing the Researcher Co-Investigators sections on the Je-S System:
