return to field list
This field contains the Personal identifier (PID) generated by the Research Councils for students whom they fund.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
This field records the Personal identifier issued by the Je-S (Joint electronic System) used since December 2004 to capture student and researcher details by EPSRC (for all student schemes) and MRC (for DTG students). Identifiers can be obtained from the Je-S Student\Researcher details screens on the Je-S Portal.
Two formats are in use. Only personal identifiers in either the 7 character format XnnnnnC or the 8 character format XnnnnnnC where X is an alpha character, n is numeric and C is an alpha check digit, should be returned.
There is a joint Research Council project that is due to complete during 2007 (on current plans) on a phased implementation basis for the remaining Research Councils. PIDs will therefore become available for new Research Council (RC) PhD students as the project progresses – NERC will implementing the project initially with the capture of MSc students. The provision of PIDS for former RC students will be dependant on the migration of data into a common data source.
