‘Research that Matters’ is one the four pillars of the University’s Strategic Framework, setting out an ambitious vision for research which breaks new ground and addresses the most pressing challenges at local, national and international level. As a key part of our preparations for the institution’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021), we are developing our evaluation capability to articulate the broader benefits and impacts of the University’s research on health and wellbeing, society, culture and the economy.

As part of the University’s continued commitment to and investment to supporting research with impact, we are inviting applications from experienced evaluation professionals to play a key role in the evolving and growing area of research impact evaluation.

You will draw on your experience of delivering evaluations in the private, public or charities sector and will be responsible for leading the design and implementation of evaluations to assess the economic and societal impact of the University’s research portfolio. You will be responsible for leading, managing, implementing and delivering a programme of impact evaluation projects to contribute to developing case studies for submission to REF2021, and will make a significant contribution to the development of strategy for research impact evaluation across a broad range of research areas and approaches.
