Closing Date: 13/02/2022
As part of Strathclyde University’s Vision 2025 (https://www.strath.ac.uk/whystrathclyde/strategicplan/) to deliver world-class research and global impact, the Glasgow City Innovation District (GCID) was launched in February 2019 as a hub for entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration. It builds on Scotland’s rich tradition of scientific excellence and industrial collaboration. Bringing together ambitious, forward-thinking people, the District is tackling societal and global challenges and driving inclusive economic growth. The University of Strathclyde is committed to the development of six new clusters contributing to GCID; FinTech, 5G, Space, Industrial Informatics, Health Tech and Quantum. These clusters have been established to act as a coalescing mechanism for both internal research and external collaboration.
The creation of the FinTech Cluster builds on the University’s strength to combine a set of complementary activities in:
The FinTech Cluster has established a number of cross Faculty activities and initiatives but is primarily lead by Strathclyde Business School (SBS).
As a Knowledge Exchange Associate, you will engage as an independent knowledge exchange professional in individual and collaborative knowledge exchange projects, establishing a distinctive programme of area of knowledge exchange and generating interest through engagement with industry and professional bodies. You will help develop consultancy, write up reports, often as lead author, for external organisations, and further write up findings for additional dissemination (e.g. professional publications or peer review journal publication) as appropriate.
To be considered for the role, you will have a good honours degree, a strong understanding of FinTech and a PhD / higher degree (or equivalent professional experience) in appropriate discipline. You will have a track record in carrying out knowledge exchange projects and a demonstrable track record in developing high quality knowledge exchange proposals and playing a leading role in attracting knowledge exchange funding. The successful candidate will have knowledge exchange interests which are consistent with the strategic direction of the FinTech Cluster and will have the ability to plan and organise knowledge exchange programmes, and to pull together teams of academic professional staff and others as appropriate, to ensure project delivery for the client and benefits to the University.
