About the Role
Queen Mary is one of the UK’s foremost research-intensive higher education institutions ranked 7th for the quality of our research in the most recent Research Excellence Framework. Our strategy 2030 sets out a strong ambition to growing research income and impact, doubling where we are today.
This is an exciting opportunity to help create a new team supporting QMUL in targeting strategic funding opportunities, monitoring our research and innovation performance and driving forward business improvement.
You will lead a small team to build an overview of QMUL research and innovation performance, coordinate inputs to sector wide exercises such as the REF and take a leading role in identifying funding opportunities that play to QMUL strengths and align with our strategic interests. Working closely with colleagues across the university you will support senior decision makers in prioritizing institutional funding applications.
This role is a perfect opportunity for candidates with expertise in research funding management or a background in analysis who are seeking to develop a wider understanding of strategic investment choices in a university environment.
You will be a self-starter with strong interpersonal skills and experience of working in partnership with others across a complex organisation. You will have excellent written and verbal communication skills and an ability to organise your team’s workload to reflect competing pressures and demands.
You will be practiced in the use of quantitative and qualitative analysis to support decision making with a proven ability to provide clear advice to senior management. With a high level of numeracy and the ability to research, analyse, and interpret complex data you will be keen to drive organisational improvement and support your team’s development.
Experience of working in a university is not essential.
We offer competitive salaries, access to a generous pension scheme, 30 days’ leave per annum (pro-rata for part-time/fixed-term), a season ticket loan scheme and access to a comprehensive range of personal and professional development opportunities. In addition, we offer a range of work life balance and family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, and campus facilities including an on-site nursery at the Mile End campus.
The post is based at Queen Mary’s Dept W near Whitechapel, with frequent travel to other campuses in London. It is a full-time, permanent appointment, starting as soon as the successful candidate is available. The starting salary will be Grade 6, in the range of £51,048 - £56,921 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
Queen Mary’s commitment to our diverse and inclusive community is embedded in our appointments processes. Reasonable adjustments will be made at each stage of the recruitment process for any candidate with a disability. We are open to considering applications from candidates wishing to work flexibly.
