Knowledge and Exchange Development Associate

University of Bristol - Research and Enterprise Development

An exciting opportunity has arisen at the University of Bristol for a Knowledge Exchange Development Associate to advance the impact of the University's research. If you have experience of developing the applications of research in business, charities, the public sector or in a university then these roles could be for you.

This post will focus on the Faculty of Engineering and work in a team with colleagues who support the University’s other five Faculties. The post-holder will take on inter-disciplinary projects, and should be able to work in any field or Faculty. The role will involve developing new partnerships with businesses, civil society organisations, communities and the public sector, supporting our Impact Acceleration Accounts, and developing funding proposals to InnovateUK and other agencies. You may find yourself building new ideas for impact with researchers, conducting market research, partnership brokering and working with organisations in any sector of the economy and society.

You should have a good understanding of research impact in the UK and be able to demonstrate experience of working in or with different types of organisations. We are interested in hearing from candidates who also have experience of marketing and communications, and of managing industry consortia.

Informal enquiries can be made to Andrew Wray ( and Frances Frith (

The University of Bristol is committed to equality and we value the diversity of our staff and students.
