Versus Arthritis funds more than 250 current research grants from basic discovery research through to clinical and applied health research. We do this via a breadth of funding instruments, including programmatic, institutional and personal awards.
This is an exciting time to join the Research Directorate as we look to grow the number of research partnerships with other funders. The Strategic Research and Partnerships Manager will be at the forefront of these efforts helping us transform our investment of pain research at scale and pace.
About the Role
In this role you will support the establishment of a new research platform, contributing to its oversight and day-to-day management and working closely with partners and other funders. This platform will be at the forefront of discovery and preclinical pain research and offer the chance for you to be involved in establishing a significant and groundbreaking new programme of research. We anticipate this platform, and others developed, will be high profile, attracting both the UK and international interest.
You will work with the Senior Research Lead and other funding partners, to scope, design, review and implement this work. You will also work closely with other Research Managers and under the direction and guidance of the Head of Research Awards and Translation.
