Copyright belongs to the employee

As a researcher you will produce results that are typically published as text, tables, graphs, illustrations, etc. These will usually be protected by copyright.

Unless otherwise agreed, in connection with your employment terms, then as a researcher at the university you will typically own the copyright to the works you produce during your research.

It is important that you are aware of the extent to which you can transfer your copyright to others, for instance, when you publish a book, article, etc.
