Research Staff Liaison Officers (RSLOs)

RSLOs provide a link between research staff (postdocs, researchers, fellows) and the central support teams. The Officers work with researchers across Faculties and with early career/postdoc associations, to ensure that their needs are represented at the Concordat Implementation Group and within the University's Concordat Action Plan.

It is aimed at internal and external high calibre postdocs and early career researchers who intend to submit a Fellowship application within 9-12 months. Find out more about our Support for Fellows at the University of York.
