Senior Research Impact Fellow

Are you an established academic researcher who has worked with business and understands the impact agenda? Or are you an experienced business executive with a strong interest in transitioning into academia?

If so, this unique opportunity to work with leading international researchers in a range of business and management areas will be of interest.  We are interested in applicants from an academic or a business background.  Depending on your background, there is some flexibility in the characteristics and experience required.  An applicant from an academic background would be expected to have a strong research profile, publications and knowledge of impact.  An applicant with a business background would be expected to have excellent knowledge of a range of business sectors, have worked at mid to senior level management, have broad knowledge of key business topics of the day and be able to network and engage with business leaders and policymakers. 

The Leeds University Research Impact Fellow will work with top experts in a range of fields.  Broad areas where they may work include: innovation management, technology implementation and evaluation, business economics, diversity and inclusion, employment initiatives and financial regulation. 

This is a faculty level post to support our impact case study authors in the run up to the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021).  The person appointed will work across the six academic divisions with impact case study authors to help them develop the impact related to their case study and where appropriate translate research outputs into directly usable outputs for business or policymakers or for other audiences.
