We have an exciting opportunity available for a flexible proactive highly motivated self-starter to be involved in the development and implementation of research strategy, in line with University and College strategic goals, within the Easter Bush Campus.
This post is advertised as full-time (35 hours per week), however, we are open to considering flexible working patterns. We are also open to considering requests for hybrid working that combines a mix of remote and regular on-campus working; there is an expectation that full-time roles spend at least 3 days on campus working.
You will support the development and implementation of the research strategy of the campus; predominantly The Roslin Institute, but also the Global Academy for Agriculture and Food Systems and the clinical research within the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.
You will ensure that academic staff are well informed about research funding opportunities and supported in their preparation of research grant applications. You will coordinate research funding and fellowship applications across the campus; establish and maintain open channels of communication with our major research funders; provide a first point-of-contact for funders and Institute staff for research funding queries (pre- and post-award); work with the quality team and CMVM research administration to gather and record Institute research outputs; and provide technical and administrative support to the Director and Deputy Director (Research) in the development of large scale research or research infrastructure applications and in the submission of the School’s Research Excellence Framework (REF) submission (Agriculture, Food & Veterinary Sciences or equivalent). The post holder will act as secretary to the Easter Bush Science Management Group. Efficient and effective undertaking of these roles is expected to lead to an increase in research income, an increase in indirect cost recovery and REG income, an increase in application success rates, and diversification of the research funding base.
