James Moir has produced a Biology Report (20/21) based around some of the activities in the Department over the last year. We hope this gives a flavour of the Department at the current time, and that this will be potentially useful for sharing with industrial partners, collaborators and prospective students.
If you are involved with recruiting or requesting contract variations for staff who are funded by core departmental codes (i.e. those beginning with a number or with the letter 'M'), the Faculty of Science has implemented a new pre-approval process. Please be advised you do not need to follow the below process if your request is funded by work orders - starting with the letters R,C,E,G,H,A,N.
The new pre-approval process comes into effect immediately and if you wish to advertise a new core funded departmental post or ask for a contract variation e.g. contract extension, change in hours etc you must gain Faculty approval using the google forms below before submitting the online Contract Variation or Vacancy Request form.
Further information and an FAQ is available under forms and templates.
Changes to ordering on the Stores Credit Cards
The way you place requests for orders to be paid for using a Biology Departmental Credit Card is changing from 1 August 2021.
The introduction of YEP2 has created some complications in the way we process these requests, so it was a chance to review the whole process.
You no longer need to submit a requisition via YEP2/Agresso so instead please use the Google Form linked below. Also linked via the Biology Finance and Stores webpages.
On this form, you fill in the details of what you want to order, where from, work order and all the relevant information for Supplies and Goods Services (Stores) to be able to place and pay for your order.
Please ensure purchase requests adhere to the University procurement regulations and that you have the budget holder’s approval.
University purchasing cards (Barclaycard) should typically be used for the following:
Low value items from suppliers who will be used infrequently or as a one off purchase to avoid YEP setup.
Purchasing goods/services only available through the Internet.
University purchasing cards (Barclaycard) must not be used for:
Purchasing goods or services from suppliers already set up on YEP.
Purchasing goods or services where contracts or agreements already exist.
We want the @BiologyatYork Twitter and Instagram sites and the Department of Biology YouTube page to be the focal points for social media in the department and therefore we need your help to ensure our posts are frequent, relevant and interesting.
Our aims for the sites are:
To promote our cutting edge research and its impact to both internal and external stakeholders at home and internationally
To increase the visibility of the department in the external environment to support the development of external partnerships.
To use social media where appropriate to close the feedback loop on student feedback
To use as a communication channel to inform stakeholders of events happening within the department and on campus
To aid in attracting and recruiting high quality applicants
There are 3 main ways that you can contribute to the Biology's social media content:

The University now has an organisational licence for Grackle, an accessibility checker for Google Docs and Presentations. In a Google Doc menu, go to Add-Ons > Get Add-Ons and search for Grackle to install it. A great feature is being able to export a Tagged PDF from a Google Doc, something we can’t currently do easily.
