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 part time Researcher Developer within the Research Department at GSA.
