Staff whose salaries are chargeable to the research grant must be appointed by the Research Organisation on the same salary and employment conditions as other similar posts in the Research Organisation (The Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, section a, paragraph 5).
If a named research assistant, funded on a research grant fails to take up, or subsequently resigns from their appointment, STFC may require the post to revert to the relevant salary scale normally awarded by the Research Organisation for a newly qualified Post Doctoral Research Assistant (PDRA) unless STFC's prior written approval is given to a new appointment at a higher level. Funds provided for a higher level appointment may not be used for any other purpose.
