The research office provides HYMS researchers (both staff and students) with general support and advice on most research-related issues, including:
The office also maintains databases of staff publications and assists with the grant application and sign-off procedure.
For staff who are employed by the University of York:
For staff who are employed by the University of Hull:
For staff whose substantive contract is with an NHS organisation:
You should direct requests for research goverance sponsorship need to be directed to one of our two parent universities -- usually to the university that employs the researcher or the supervisor.
If your substantive contract is with an NHS organisation, you should approach the research department of your employing organisation in the first instance. However, if you require governance sponsorship for the purposes of a research degree, you should approach the university with which you are registered, which should ordinarily be the university that employs your supervisor.
Please keep the HYMS research office aware of all sponsorship request enquiries.
The academic leads for the Research office are Professor Bill McGuire at York and Professor Ian Chetter at Hull.
