The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is a large, multi-faceted and nationally distributed organisation funded through the Department of Health and Social Care. Together, NIHR people, facilities and systems represent the most integrated clinical research system in the world, driving research from bench to bedside for the benefit of patients and the economy.
LGC is an international life sciences company working with customers in the government, academic, pharmaceutical, agricultural biotechnology, food, environment, security and sports sectors to achieve excellence in investigative, diagnostic and measurement science. LGC’s Grant Management Group (GMG) are experts in managing research funding to maximise its impact.
On behalf of the UK Department of Health and Social Care, GMG manages two important components of the National Institute for Health Research: the Central Commissioning Facility (CCF) and the NIHR Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure (NOCRI).
In recent years the Department of Health and Social Care and NIHR have started to fund research programmes to benefit people’s health in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) across the globe. It provides an opportunity for UK universities to exploit their gold standard science and research capabilities overseas or expand their existing global health work. LGC is seeking to add to its recently established team which manages LMIC-focused health research programmes and the use of Official Development Assistance (ODA) funding.
The Senior Programme Manager will cover the full end-to-end process of research management, from scoping launching new calls for applications through to the active monitoring of funded projects and will require an ability to work collaboratively with other team members. The post provides the opportunity for exciting external liaison, with interfaces to UK government, academia, industry and the clinical community.
The postholder will be expected to either take on additional line management tasks or deliver special expertise in handling ODA project funding.
In addition, Senior Programme Managers will be expected to either line manage of up to two members of staff or provide support to colleagues on detailed aspects of the safe delivery of ODA support.
