School of Computer Science
25 July 2011
This week sees another ERVS departure with Doug Edwards leaving at the end of July. Doug originally came to the University in 1971 as a lecturer in Electrical Engineering. He then left us briefly for a two year period starting in 1973 to work for Ferranti before returning to the School of Computer Science in 1975 - and he has been with us ever since! Doug has contributed to the School in many, often colourful(!), ways over the years and we would like to thank him for all his efforts. Doug will be retaining some research links with the School over the coming years, but we would also like to wish him well for his retirement, which I am sure will involve orienteering amongst other things.
Research Support Services Survey
As part of a university review of research support, the faculty is considering revising the structure of research offices. With a view to obtaining some top-level insight into the views of current users of the research office in the school, during the last week a survey has been carried out among staff on the acstaff mail list. The following questions were asked:
Question 1: Which of the following models would you prefer for delivery of research support services in the school:
Question 2: How satisfied are you with the current research office in the school:
The following results were obtained (from 33 responses).
These results show remarkably high levels of satisfaction with the current office, and clearly reflect very positively on Ursula, Helen and Anna.
