You will work with academic and professional support services staff in order to enable a wide range of research projects in all of the academic disciplines represented at Edge Hill. You will be able to apply and develop your skills as a contract practitioner in a higher education research context.

You will be welcomed into a small and supportive department. The Research Office offers a variety of research support functions that the role feeds in to – through working alongside colleagues in the Research Office you will develop and extend your understanding of the contracting with research funders, collaborators and regulators.

You will benefit from 25 days annual leave plus 13 bank holiday and University closure days per annum, pro rata.
