University of Exeter - Research Services

These two, full time posts are available immediately, one on a 12 month fixed term basis and one is permanent.

The University of Exeter is a Russell Group university that combines world-class research with very high levels of student satisfaction. Exeter has over 21,000 students from more than 130 different countries and is in the top 1% of universities in the world with 98% of its research rated as being of international quality. Our research focuses on some of the most fundamental issues facing humankind today. Fifty percent of our organisation is made up of Professional Services support staff that partner closely with the Academic colleges to ensure we achieve our strategy and vision.

The University of Exeter has grown its research activity significantly over the last few years and, since joining the Russell Group of research-intensive universities in 2012, has made a step change in its research income and earnings performance, research quality, numbers of research students and knowledge transfer activities. The Research Services Directorate is a key enabler to the delivery of the University’s Research and Impact Strategy, a successful next REF submission and meeting research income targets.

The two roles are within the Research Development and Management pillar situated in the Health Cluster with a focus on supporting academics within our medical school, psychology and sports and health sciences department. The post holder will provide research development and management support and advice to academics across the research project lifecycle from idea to impact, supporting and co-ordinating the research proposal development of complex projects. The post is also expected to co-ordinate research specialist support from other RS Clusters and other professional services (IIB, GED etc.) as appropriate.
