Governance structure and interaction with Faculty Graduate Schools
The Postgraduate Research (PGR) Executive is chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation. The Head of PGR Service is its Secretary.
Each Faculty has a Graduate School, for which the Postgraduate Research Service provides most of the administration. The remainder is provided by the Faculty PGR Training Co-ordinator and any local support staff involved in supporting the Faculty Associate Dean for Postgraduate Research or the Training Co-ordinator.
A Graduate School Executive (GSE) in each Faculty is chaired by the Faculty Associate Dean for Postgraduate Research; the relevant Postgraduate Research Officer is its Secretary.
In addition there is a Graduate School Executive that supports the Norwich Bioscience Institutes (NBI). This includes PGR Directors from the John Innes Centre (JIC), The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL), the Earlham Institute (EI) and the Quadram Institute Bioscience (QIB). The NBI GSE is chaired by the NRP Biosciences Director; the Secretary is the NBI Graduate Studies Manager.
Each committee meets approximately every two months.
