Variety in Science Grants to Benefit Research

Chemistry World has recently reported on a study into the effectiveness of the allocation of grant money to the scientific community.

The study, conducted by David Currie and Jean-Michel Fortin, biologists at the University of Ottawa, Canada, found that a series of smaller grants to a wider variety of people and institutions is more conducive to effective and meaningful research than large grants to the ‘elite’ in the scientific community. The conclusions of Currie and Fortin indicate that an increased monetary grant does not increase productivity.

Highly cited studies are seemingly unaffected by the level of funding received. The impact generally comes down to the quality of the researchers, regardless of career stage. Some more experienced scientists could have larger grants but less time to perform studies due to other commitments, such as teaching, and so cannot fully use the grant money. It would therefore be better to disseminate the money to a wider variety of researchers so that more diverse research could be performed.

Essentially, the money from grants is better used to improve the scientific community as a whole, rather than for the benefit a few specific areas of research. By funding the elite institutions, it is probably that the vitality and variety of scientific thought will be significantly dulled.

Graduates – Great for Business!

Whilst experience is always a bonus, the hiring of graduates is also good for a successful business. Here are a few reasons why.

Cost

It may seem obvious, but an experienced person is going to want more money than a graduate, even if they are applying for the same position. To reduce annual company salaries it makes sense to hire the cheaper option.

Loyalty and Enthusiasm

The fact that you’ve hired a graduate and given them an initial taste of working life would tend to make them err on the side of gratuity. Carefully managed, this could translate into loyalty to your company. The inexperienced graduate would want to prove they can perform as best they can in their new job, possibly with little knowledge of the market and arguably their true worth. Should they turn out to be one of your better performers, managing them successfully could mean they stay for longer than they otherwise would.

Adaptability

New graduates are more likely to be adaptable and au fait with current and emerging technology. It could be better to have an employee who is more capable of throwing themselves into various fields of work, rather than an expert in just one or two. The ability to use new technology is also obviously a bonus, allowing your business to stay at the cutting edge of new developments.

These, plus other reasons that can be found on The Undercover Recruiter, are just a few reasons as to why graduates are excellent candidates to hire for your business.

Dundee Research Centre Granted £24 million

The University of Dundee’s research centre for the treatment of human diseases has been granted £24 million to continue its work over the next five years, reports Life Sciences Scotland.

The grant has come thanks to the taxpayer, something the Chief Executive of the Medical Research Council Sir John Savill believes to be fantastic. He said “It is important for people to know how crucial their own money has been in uncovering health improvements” such as the MRI scanner.

The funding will allow for the research facility to add a number of new scientists to the team. The work undertaken at the research centre has is part of a worldwide effort, that through various grants has been able to support over 160 staff in over 25 countries. The MRC is dedicated to funding some of the leading medical research in the world through reinvestment of taxpayer’s money.

How to Keep Your Best Staff

Good employees are obviously fantastic to have, but by performing well they may start to cast their eye around in order to find a better job, possibly at a competitor. If this is the case, how are you supposed to go about keeping your best staff?

To begin with, make them feel appreciated. It seems counter-productive to ignore how well they have been performing and not address the fact that they may be coveted by other companies. If you recognise and mention this to your best performer then you can explain why you want them to stay, highlighting what they have been doing well to boost their confidence.

Spend time coaching and helping them develop new skills and techniques that will assist them in their current role. Do not, however, promise money in order to get them to stay. This would give them a clear route to leave should you not deliver, as you have shown you do not keep promises.

Furthermore, support their career development. As a manager, it is your job to get them to achieve the career goals they have set out, whether that is in their current job or not. By doing this, and therefore indicating your importance as a career mentor, you could encourage your star employee to stay on longer, so as to work with someone they respect.

Make sure to work with the better performers! Again, this is necessary in order to get them to feel appreciated in their role. By spending all the time with the weaker members of the team, those who are performing better may feel ignored and seek a position where they are more valued.

By doing this, you may not guarantee that your staff will stay forever, but you will increase the chance that they stay for longer. Don’t feel that by working towards their goals you’re helping them to leave; it will benefit your company too, by increasing the standard of work that is produced by your team.

CK to be Represented at REC Summit

The CK Group is set to be represented at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s Skills Summit in London on the 26th June by Operations Director Liam O’Connell.

He will be representing the CK Group throughout the day, including at the life sciences workshop. The REC event, sponsored by the Telegraph, is set to bring together four sectors which are experiencing high growth and are as such essential to the current economy. The other sectors included in the day’s agenda alongside life sciences are engineering, technology and the creative industries.

With demand outstripping supply in these sectors, Liam will be attending to see how exactly it is possible to boost the amount of people who work in these sectors to meet the needs of the businesses within them. Furthermore, the workshops are intended to give attendees a chance to understand government enterprises and find ways to be involved in them to the benefit of these fields.

20% of UK Workforce has a Science Job

The Financial Times has reported that approximately one fifth of the UK workforce has a science based job.

5.8 million people are scientists or use science skills daily, the Science Council has discovered in a recent study. The number includes ‘secondary science workers’ such as nurses or software engineers. Scientists were found to be in industries as diverse as education, finance and farming, as well as more traditional scientific sectors, such as the chemical industry.

Chief executive of the Science Council, Diana Garnham, has said that secondary science roles can be “found literally everywhere in the economy.” The research indicates that by 2030, there could be over 7 million people involved in science in some way, prompting Diana Garnham to say “the research begins to explain… why there is such huge demand for people with science qualifications.”
