Our strategy 2030 sets out a strong ambition to growing research income and impact, doubling where we are today. Expanding our capability in analysis and planning is a vital part of enabling QMUL to reach its ambitious targets.
This is a new role within QMUL Research Services. You will lead work to develop and maintain an overview of QMUL research and innovation performance and our position within the UK HE sector.
You will draw together insights from academic and professional services colleagues across the institution, seek external input and conduct your own analysis to create an integrated picture and recommendations for action.
