Stirling University is seeking nine new staff to beef up its enterprise and knowledge-transfer activities.
The posts, advertised in today's Times Higher , range from a business development manager to research and enterprise policy office assistants.
The staff will join its research and enterprise office, which integrates the former research support and commercialisation offices into a new unit.
John Rogers, director of research and knowledge transfer, said the university had a tradition of applied research. A large part of its knowledge transfer focuses on areas such as the improvement of public services and working with the voluntary sector.
The new grouping would ensure that research development for PhDs, postdocs and academics throughout their career sat alongside knowledge transfer opportunities and support for research funding proposals.
The job was "making a reality of the integration of research and enterprise in a way that's often talked about but is not often achieved", Dr Rogers said "PhDs and postdocs are essential to our research. The research and enterprise team has a key role in supporting our graduate skills training programme," he added.
