Translational Research Manager

Department : Research Strategy & Development

King's College London is seeking 3 Translational Research Managers for the Health Faculties, in partnership with our two NIHR Biomedical Research Centres. We are particularly interested in candidates with knowledge of advanced therapies, psychiatry & neuroscience, and/or healthcare engineering.

The Translational Research Managers will work with academic staff to enhance translational research activity within the Health Faculties at King's, in close partnership with our two Biomedical Research Centres. They will work with academic staff to increase translational research funding and successful delivery of programmes, and will also design and deliver training in translational research to academics looking to expand their research into this area.

The Translational Research Managers will act as subject area experts in translational research, particularly with respect to the development of funding applications, providing advice and support to academic staff, and contribution to activities that enhance the research environment (including internal funding schemes, relationships with funding bodies, and analysis of research performance).

The roles will form part of a high-performing research development team, working alongside world-class academic researchers, and will have “dotted line” integration with the Biomedical Research Centres.

The ideal candidate will bring significant experience of translational research (funding) along with a background of research in a relevant health/biomedical field. He/she will combine strong strategic and project management capabilities with diplomacy, negotiation skills and an ability to work well across functions and academic disciplines.

This post will be offered on a 2 year contract, funded by a grant from Wellcome. There may be a possibility to extend the contract subject to continued funding.

This is a full-time post

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.
