As a University for Public Good, we will innovate in partnership with business and industry to create a more equitable and sustainable future that considers society, culture and the environment alongside economic prosperity. Truly a University for the Public Good.

To fulfil this ambition, we launched a transformational initiative to Build Industry Engagement and Impact.

We are seeking candidates who have considerable experience working in or collaborating with business and industry in order to realise this ambition. We are seeking to appoint up to six industry research fellows in two rounds of recruitment.

Applications are welcomed in any discipline(s) where a significant opportunity can be demonstrated to enhance our strategic industrial partnerships. Areas already identified where we have great potential to expand existing collaborations include: healthcare and biomedical sciences, biotechnology, creative technologies, environmental sustainability and safe autonomous systems. We are interested in engaging with both researchers already in higher education and colleagues in industry/business seeking to move into an academic setting.

Female candidates, and candidates who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, are strongly encouraged to apply as they are currently under-represented in senior academic roles at the University.

The Role:

  • Build collaborations with business, industry, government agencies, professional bodies and other institutions to enhance the application of research and/or leverage staff expertise in real-world settings.
  • Develop relevant types of engagement with business and industry such as collaborative and contract research, consultancy, commercialisation, continuing professional development and other types of engagement that create mutual benefit such as employability.
  • Develop compelling proposals for funding business and industry collaborations with a strategy for scaling up interactions.
