Responsibilities of the Principal Investigator on ISIS proposals
The Principal Investigator on an ISIS proposal has specific responsibilities for the experiment.
The Principal Investigator has to:
ensure that a trained team capable of running the experiment on a 24 hour basis will be available and that the researchers will observe the appropriate investigations, especially on safety, of ISIS and STFC.
ensure that the information on the sample and the safety aspects of the experiment are correct and complete
nominate the people who have access to the experimental data
ensure that an experimental report is submitted within 3 months of experiment completion and that results from experiments at ISIS are published within a reasonable time frame
ensure that ISIS is acknowledged in publications and that ISIS staff, where appropriate, are included as authors
Note that research students cannot be Principal Investigators on ISIS proposals.
