Skilled Resource Pool

Skilled Resource Pool

A Skilled Resource Pool is the mechanism through which research staff on Contracts of Indefinite Duration continue to be assigned to work on externally-funded research projects. The SRP process is triggered when funding for your salary on a specific externally funded research project is coming to an end. A minimum of 3 months from the end of the current project assignment, the staff member makes their details available to PIs with vacancies for research-funded roles.  All PIs are required to give full consideration to SRP candidates in the filling of vacancies prior to any external advertising being approved.

Policy Summary

This is a university policy covering research staff in UCD that have been issued with contracts of indefinite duration (CID) and who must continue to be paid from and occupied on externally funded research work – unless they secure, through the normal recruitment processes, an alternative core-funded role.  

This policy sets out the general principles and parameters for the operation and management of College-level Skilled Resource Pools.
