Research assistants are defined in the Assessment framework and guidance on submissions pages 17-21.
Where a staff member holds more than one contract where Contract.ACEMPFUN = 2 in a reporting period, Person.RESAST should only be completed as 1 if all contracts where Contract.ACEMPFUN = 2 are Research Assistant posts.
All staff who are selected for the 2014 REF should be coded 0 in Person.RESAST. This will apply to staff whose contracts state they are a research assistant but who nevertheless meet the criteria to be selected as category A staff.
Example 1 – All contracts where Contract.ACEMPFUN = 2 are Research Assistant posts.
A staff member had two consecutive contracts during the reporting year, where contract 1 was coded as Contract.ACEMPFUN = 2 and was as a Research Assistant, and contract 2 was not coded Contract.ACEMPFUN = 2 and was not as a Research Assistant. Person.RESAST should be completed as 1.
Example 2 – All contracts where Contract.ACEMPFUN = 2 are not Research Assistant posts.
A staff had two consecutive contracts during the reporting year, both of which were coded asContract.ACEMPFUN = 2. Contract 1 was not as a Research Assistant and contract 2 was not as a Research Assistant. Person.RESAST should be completed as 0.
