Are you an enthusiastic and driven individual with a broad knowledge of research funding available to UK researchers? Do you have a desire to be part of a research development team providing high quality support and guidance to academic colleagues to help to grow their research funding portfolios? Do you have a passion for communication and an ability to balance a demanding and varied workload?

The University Strategic Plan (2014-2020) sets an ambitious target to grow research funding by 50% to £200m per annum by 2020. The UK Research Development Team plays a key role in supporting academics to develop high quality research and innovation proposals that will help to meet this target.

With strong analytical skills and experience of acting as a source of expert advice to a range of audiences, you will support the Research & Innovation Development Team to identify and map out funding opportunities across the University’s diverse portfolio, working with key stakeholders to disseminate information effectively to the academic community.

In addition, this role will involve coordinating regular, high profile visits from funding organisations. You will be effective in communicating at all levels, and have excellent organisational and time management skills.
