The University of Roehampton is seeking a Research Impact Officer with specific focus on collaborating with STEM-related industries and organisations. Research Impact Officers help ensure that our research meaningfully benefits society, industry, and policy in the UK and around the world. This role sits with the Research Development team within our Research Office. The Research Development team works closely with the senior executive team, researchers, academic departments, and professional services to jointly ensure we meet our research ambitions.
The Research Impact Officer will work closely with researchers and Research Office colleagues to identify potential external partners or beneficiaries in the life sciences and related industries in particular, identify opportunities for knowledge exchange or impact, enhance and maximise outcomes, and develop robust, creative strategies for evaluation and evidencing impact arising from research. This is an exciting and strategically important role that will see you support the University’s high-profile impact case studies for REF 2021 and beyond, and the ongoing delivery of our impact and knowledge exchange agendas.
This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.
We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas.
The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working. We are proud of our achievements as a Post 1992 University and continue to build upon them.
