Research Funding Coordinator

Sheffield Hallam University - Research and Innovation Office/Grants and Systems Team

Sheffield Hallam University is one of the UK’s leading modern universities; it was ranked 5th for research quality out of all UK modern Universities following the results of the REF 2014. The University has an ambitious strategy to further increase the quality of our research and increase external grant income. An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Research and Innovation Office for a Research Funding Coordinator to join the pre-award Grants and Systems Team, and contribute towards achieving the University’s Research and Innovation Strategy.

Working with the Research Development Manager as part of the team you will support processes for, and the submission of, a portfolio of research grant applications with specific focus on improving the quality of proposals to a wide range of research funders, for example, the UK Research Councils, charities and public bodies, including the NHS. You will also support a programme of staff development activities and the provision of management information.

A proven track record of research support activities is essential, as you will take a lead role in disseminating funding intelligence, providing advice on the preparation and costing of research bids, liaising with external funding bodies and collaborators. You will be an excellent team player with the ability and self-confidence to use your own initiative and work independently when necessary. Good communication skills are essential in this role, alongside the ability to work to deadlines and prioritise work effectively.

Closing date: 03/11/16 at 23.30pm
