I have been successful in a research award and concerned about the start date

It is recommended that if you are concerned about the start date of your award, please liaise with the funder to agree a revised start date. Any agreed amendments to start dates should be sent to tnu-tr.njro-awards@nhs.net so the necessary changes can be made.

Newcastle University has paused all new staff recruitment until at least 31st July 2020. Exceptions will be granted on a case by case basis.

For those staff on fixed-term contracts, Newcastle University has agreed to extend all contracts to 31st July 2020 until more is known about the duration of the COVID-19 restrictions and the response from UKRI and the Government. Updates will be provided as soon as possible.

If you have any queries regarding any of the above, please contact the Faculty of Medical Sciences People Services Team on fms.peopleservices@newcastle.ac.uk

The Trust continues to recruit staff at the present time but please be mindful of the current circumstances when considering your recruitment and selection plan.

It is important to take all of the above into account when considering liaising with funders over any revised start date.
