The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) is a world leading, independent, university-level institution for the visual creative disciplines. We attract some of the finest academic and creative talent and are committed to creating and sustaining learning and working environments, where difference is respected, and the widest possible range of cultural and social perspectives are valued.
We are at an exciting point in the development of our research culture and are growing the research professional support team, in line with current strategic ambitions. Our recent performance in REF, where 82% of our research was assessed as world leading and internationally excellent, placed us at the top of the UK specialist creative practice Higher Education Institutions. Plans to build on this success include developing and supporting research leadership at every career stage, increasing the proportion of world-leading research for the next REF, and maximising the impact potential of our research in collaboration with external partners.
We are excited to invite applications for a full time Knowledge Exchange and Impact Officer within the Research Department at GSA.
Knowledge Exchange and Impact Officer (1.0 FTE)
The Knowledge Exchange and Impact Officer will support academic research staff across the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) to undertake knowledge exchange (KE), achieve research impact and stimulate innovation.
As a member of GSA’s central research support team, the Knowledge Exchange and Impact Officer will build our strategic collaborations with cultural, civic, and industrial partners, help academic colleagues to deliver impact and income-generating KE projects, support the development of impact case studies, and improve the operational infrastructure which facilitates that work, including through the coordination of a public engagement with research (PER) programme.
The successful candidate will have an excellent understanding of all aspects of research impact, including how to cultivate it, the collection and analysis of evidence, articulation of outcomes and how to plan and prepare Impact Case Studies for REF.
They will have excellent knowledge and understanding of the KE and Innovation policy and funding system, experience of building and maintaining professional networks, partnerships and collaborations, and a demonstrable track record in a relevant field.
They will be familiar with current theory and practice to support public engagement with research, the commercialisation of research and intellectual property, and how to build the KE and innovation capacity of individuals and organisations.
