What is a Researcher Profile?

Your researcher profile is an individual, publicly accessible internet profile on the University's website that provides a user friendly and efficient way of showcasing your work. It is designed to highlight areas of expertise including research, teaching / mentoring / leadership and administrative. The main data repository for researcher profile information is the Nexus database.

The Research Performance and Systems Unit located within Research Services is responsible for the creation and maintenance of researcher profiles. The Media and Public Relations team assist with the provision of feature stories and / or news under the '"highlights" tab.
