University of Nottingham - Science

Location: Nottingham
Salary: £27,584 to £33,804 per annum (pro-rata if applicable) depending on skills and experience
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 7th December 2023
Closes: 7th January 2024
Job Ref: SCI573523

We are looking for a friendly, engaging, enthusiastic person to join the Physical Sciences hub (School of Chemistry and School of Physics and Astronomy) in the Faculty of Science Research and Knowledge Exchange (RKE) team on a fixed term basis from 1st March 2024. You will work together with Hub colleagues and the wider Faculty RKE team, contributing to the planning, administration and management of the support elements of the research lifecycle. You will provide senior administrative support to academic and research staff applying for and managing research grants.

The post is based in the Physical Sciences hub, meaning the role holder will primarily work at the University Park Campus. It will also be possible for the role holder to spend some time working from home if desired.

As a Senior Research Administrator you will:

  • Coordinate the administrative support provision for pre- and post-award activity related to bids and grants within your hub.
  • Collaborate with a wide group of stakeholders to ensure support levels are delivered and maintained.
  • Provide guidance to the relevant stakeholders, calculating budgets and data entry using the Research Management System.  
  • Support the RKE team as required in all aspects of research output including organising events, committees, general support office outputs and administration.

And you will bring:

  • Excellent verbal and written communication and numeracy skills.
  • Attention to detail and the ability to multitask. 
  • A drive and willingness to take the initiative in process improvements.
  • A positive attitude to building and maintaining professional relationships with colleagues.

Experience of working accurately with finance or numerical data and of planning your own work activities and delivering to deadlines are essential. Experience in research project budgets and finances would be beneficial but not essential. 

We welcome applications from high quality people who will enhance the diversity of our RKE team. The Faculty is committed to creating opportunities for people traditionally under-represented in Science.

The post is offered on a full time (36.25 hours per week), fixed-term contract until 28 February 2025. Applications are welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 29 hours per week). Please specify in your application if you wish to work part-time and the number of preferred hours. 

Requests for secondment from internal candidates may be considered on the basis that prior agreement has been sought from both your current line manager and the manager of your substantive post, if you are already undertaking a secondment role.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Linsea Duffy (Linsea.duffy@nottingham.ac.uk) or Lucy Veale (lucy.veale@nottingham.ac.uk). Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
