The University of Oxford is committed to improving research culture. Within the Medical Sciences Divisional Office, we have identified the need to join up activities, facilitate learning and best practice, and develop and implement new divisional strategies to accelerate progress on improving research culture.
Research culture covers a wide range of areas, namely that researchers have an equally positive experience of working in their role at the University regardless of subject area, department, background or personal characteristic. This includes equality of access to career development opportunities and progression, training and support within an inclusive, supportive and respectful environment. In many of these areas, major improvement initiatives are underway.
This exciting new post will lead the development of a strategy that brings together existing high quality activities and initiatives and be the linchpin that adds value across the existing landscape and identifies and pursues areas for improvement.
We are looking for someone who is action oriented, creative and driven. Experience of operating at a strategic level and proven success in contributing effectively and creatively to the development, communication and implementation of change is essential. Strong project management and creative problem solving skills, in a complex and distributed environment, will also be essential in managing the different areas of this broad ranging and impactful project.
Applying your analytical skills, you will draw upon learning and data from across the sector, including research culture and best practice from other institutions. Using this insight and knowledge you will develop and implement new strategies and practical interventions to improve research culture across the Medical Sciences Division, and the wider University.
Working within the Medical Sciences Divisional Office’s Research Team, you will work with a very broad range of stakeholders and specialists across the division to ensure that divisional actions and interventions complement departmental activity and priorities, and that strategies and interventions are adopted by stakeholders and meet the needs of our staff and students.
Closing date: 12 noon on Wednesday 29 September 2021. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
