UCCRSA membership information

The UCC Research Staff Association (UCCRSA) is focused primarily on representing and promoting the interests of researchers in all research roles and career stages within UCC. Additionally, UCCRSA is a full member of other RSAs, both nationally (IrishRSA) and internationally (ICoRSA). Our common mission is to provide a voice for research staff on all matters to do with the welfare of our research staff. Our Board is working with University management to improve career development prospects and working conditions for researchers. We also aim to disseminate relevant information to researchers that is pertinent to them and actively represent researchers by inputting on policies pertaining to researchers’ working lives at local, regional, national and international level. Our aim is to ensure YOUR voice is heard at the decision-making tables.


Your membership is important to us! The more we are, the stronger our voice! Why join? UCCRSA promotes the interests of researchers in all research roles and career stages. The membership offers you relevant information on a regular basis. Becoming a member of UCCRSA, you will be represented at UCC and local/regional level.

It is open to all UCC research staff and those who support the aims of our association. The UCCRSA is dependent on research staff raising issues they want addressed or suggesting initiatives to improve research career development or job satisfaction for researchers and encourages participation from all researchers at UCC. Another benefit of being part of UCCRSA is that you automatically have membership of IrishRSA. The IrishRSA represents research staff in Ireland, including researchers within Research Staff Associations and individual researchers who lack representation through an RSA, and to advocate for their common interests at a national and international level in particular towards the goal of sustainable research careers. As UCCRSA is already a member of IrishRSA, you will also be represented by IrishRSA on a national level when becoming a member of UCCRSA.
