Training for All SLAC Researchers
The SLAC Policy on the Conduct of Research establishes training requirements for all SLAC researchers. SLAC researchers are any employees who could be listed as authors on SLAC scientific publications in their official capacity.
SLAC researchers are required to take the following classes to help ensure the integrity of research performed at the laboratory. First, SLAC researchers are required to review Chapter 1 of the Stanford Research Policy Handbook on the conduct of research and certify that they have reviewed the material by taking CRO101 (Conduct of Research) on the SLAC Training Website. In addition, SLAC researchers are required to take CRO102 Conflict of Interest and RPTC01 (TARC Process and Form Training). These on-line courses can be completed in about an hour.
The requirement to complete CRO101, CRO102 and RPTC01 will be included in all researchers’ SLAC Training Assessment (STA) and reviewed as part of the performance appraisal process. All ALD’s are required to confirm to the SLAC Director that these requirements have been effectively implemented in their respective directorates as part of the performance appraisal process.
Principal Investigator Training
To ensure the integrity of research performed at the laboratory, SLAC Principal Investigators (PIs) and SLAC researchers with the intent to apply for outside funding are required to take additional classes listed below. No proposals can be submitted without the completion of these training. These courses are found on the SLAC Training Website.
- CRO201 (Responsible Conduct of Research for PIs)
- CRO203 (Export Control for PIs)
- CRO204 (Financial Management for PIs)
- CRO205 (ES&H for PIs)
The requirement to complete CRO201, CRO203, CRO204, and CRO205 will be included in all PI’s SLAC Training Assessment (STA) and reviewed as part of the performance appraisal process. All ALD’s are required to confirm to the SLAC Director that these requirements have been effectively implemented in their respective directorates as part of the performance appraisal process.
NOTE: The SLAC training requirements for researchers and PIs are equally applicable to Stanford/SLAC joint faculty, Stanford PI at SLAC appointments, Stanford researchers, graduate students and post-docs doing research at SLAC.
