The successful candidate will liaise with other University sections, project partners and funders. We are looking for a highly organised individual with good communication and financial skills, and some experience of research support, preferably in universities or relevant industry. The prime function of the post will be to provide researchers with direct and indirect support in developing, costing and managing proposals to ensure they are handled as efficiently as possible and ensuring maximum recovery of costs to the University. In addition, the post-holder will be in a position to provide pre-competitive development work to add value to the research development process.
