The School Structure pages provide an overview of the management committees within the School of Biology, and access to committee membership and outline details. Links to committee minutes (stored on bioInternal) are also provided. See here.
Details of physical locations in the School are also available.
bioIntenal is a shared internal work and document filing space for the School of Biology which may be accessed here.
bioInternal is delivered using 'Sharepoint' - the University is currently (Autumn 2011) considering the option of a new sitewide Sharepoint, but at present bioInternal is 'local' to the School of Biology and requires a separate password. Access is restricted to School of Biology staff. If you wish to enquire about access, please contact Steve Smart or Sean Earnshaw
School Staff Pages
A school staff page should have been set up for you when you started work, if this has not happened, or if you require further assistance, please contact Steve Smart or
Margaret Wilson. Staff involved in research staff should also find out about having a profile in research@st-andrews, the University's research portal. This is powered by an application called PURE, you can find out more about this, and contact details for staff at the Research Policy Office here
