Director of Research

Director of Research Prof. Chris Williams (DoR) and Deputy Director of Research Dr Ian Simpson (DDoR): roles and responsibilities

Standard grant applications (e.g. EPSRC responsive mode) do not need input from the DoR, and should  be handled in the usual way via your portfolio manager and peers in your Institute.

Two areas that should be discussed with the DoR are (i) major fellowship applications (e.g. EPSRC, ERC, Royal Society URF, RAEng), and (ii) major grants, e.g. EPSRC Programme Grants. The DoR has an office hour every Monday 1-2pm in his office, IF 2.52 (if unavailable this will be announced in advance).
