Supervisor Eligibility

Please note that ARIES primary supervisors must:

Be employed by, and usually based at, an ARIES hosting partner;

Have a track record of research aligned to the NERC remit, or where an inexperienced primary supervisor is proposed, a more experienced supervisor will need to be appointed on the supervisory team:

Have a record of peer-reviewed publications in the NERC remit in journals that would be deemed “internationally excellent” or “world leading” according to current REF criteria;

Be eligible to be a PhD Primary Supervisor according to their institute’s criteria for institutionally-funded studentships;

Have undertaken approved professional development training in relation to their supervisory role within the last 3 years;

Have undertaken equality/diversity and unconscious bias training in the last two years, and be committed to compliance with relevant sections of the ARIES Equality and Diversity statement;

Have a 100% record of formal progress reporting for at least the previous 12 months for all of their PGR students;

You may not be a primary supervisor for an ARIES-funded DTP student in successive years.

ARIES DTP Research Costs (Research Training Support Grant, RTSG)

ARIES has a notional expectation of £8,000 for Research Cost requests.  Research Costs requests do not need to include any funding associated with mandatory ARIES training, and ARIES holds £2,500 for each student, which they may request for conference attendance, travel, and training external to the DTP.

UKRI Terms and Conditions for Training Grants state that ” The RTSG is not intended to relieve [the Research Organisation] of any part of [the Research Organisation’s] normal expenditure.” and “[The Research Organisation] must ensure that adequate facilities are resources are made available for the research training.” For this reason students must have well-founded laboratory resources available where required, that are maintained in good working order by the host for the duration of the student’s study. Equipment costs and computer costs will not normally be considered.

Requested costs should be strictly for the benefit of the student and not to support the research interests of any other individual.

Please note all supporting information and the Research Costs Form must be uploaded to the OneDrive Server  by 10th September 2021
