This is a great opportunity to gain experience in a busy grants function that manages around 400 projects at any one time. We submit over 160 applications per year with a combined total value of around £70m. Biology projects are funded by a wide variety of funding bodies, and the nature of our work means there are numerous international collaborations, partnerships and consultancies.
The Department of Biology formally came into being on 1 August 2022, resulting from the merger of current Departments Plant Sciences and Zoology. You will be a key part of a team that develops new, merged administrative processes and ensures outstanding support for our grants going forward.
You will be part of a team of Research Finance Officers, each of whom will manage a portfolio of grants. Each Research Finance Officer will look after their projects from application to completion, working closely with grant holders (PIs) to provide excellent service and working closely with the Research Funding Manager and Finance Manager.
You will have outstanding team working skills and the ability to work effectively with all stakeholders and inspire confidence of grant-holders and funders. You will also have proven experience of the research grants sector and the principles of good grant management.
You will need to demonstrate strong financial skills and the ability to manage and prioritise your own workload working to strict deadlines.
Committed to equality and valuing diversity.
