UCC Research Staff Association

Welcome to the UCC Research Staff Association website

UCC Research Staff Association - (Coláiste na hOllscoile Corcaigh Taighde Comhlachas Foirne)

The UCC Research Staff Association was set up in December 2006 under the banner of the Association of Research Contract Staff to provide help, advice and a voice for this group of workers both within UCC and nationally.  More specifically, many contract researchers feel that there is no voice to represent them and that many of the problems that are unique to them have not been properly identified and addressed.  By 2013 it was recognised that many of these same problems also extended to the wider research community as a whole. The decision was therefore taken to re-name the organisation to  the UCC Research Staff Association to better reflect the wider membership.

UCCRSA will work with UCC and other relevant bodies to help address these concerns. We hope that this page will serve as a useful portal that Researchers can use to learn more about the issues that concern them and also as a forum for putting forward their opinions.

Our association was set up by, and is run by Researchers on an entirely voluntary basis. UCCRSA will strive to equally represent research staff at all stages of their careers, and from all four UCC Colleges.  We strongly welcome comments or questions and can be contacted at uccrsa@ucc.ie.
