Research Staff and Former Research Students
In addition to academic lecturing staff, CRR employs its own full-time research officers. These well-qualified staff are dedicated to specific projects and are recruited for their knowledge of that topic and their experience of research techniques. It is not our usual policy to employ undergraduate students in this role unless specifically requested to do so. Our research officers ensure that clients have access to an efficient, reliable and friendly research service.
