Dear ASC brains trust,

A question for y’all: in describing the staff who work in a research organisation, who falls under the ‘research staff’ umbrella?

Is it just those employed as qualified scientists? Or would you include lab technicians and PhD students as well?

And if not – is there another phrase which captures all those people whose work directly contributes to research outcomes?

I’m basically looking for a phrase to describe all those staff in a research organisation who are not in admin or support roles.
