Staff and investigator costs - STFC



There are several types of staff post that can be requested on a grant proposal including investigators, researchers, technicians and associated students.
These posts may be requested as directly incurred, directly allocated or, in some cases, exceptions. See full economic costing fund headings for information about which headings to use.

Applicants must ensure that they have obtained the permission of any other person named on the proposal form (for example, any co-investigators or project partners) for the provision of their personal information to UKRI and the processing of their data by UKRI for the purpose of assessing the application and management of any funding awarded.

To note, UKRI is introducing new role types for opportunities being run on the new Funding Service from 22 May 2023. For full details please visit Eligibility as an individual.
