Position overview

The College of Health and Medicine (CHM) is comprised of four Schools: the Research School of Population Health (RSPH), the Research School of Psychology (RSP), the ANU Medical School (ANUMS) and The John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR). The College has recently been structured to create a specialised critical mass in research and education in the health and medical sciences. CHM includes in its focus, the need to raise the profile of staff in the University’s health sector partners, and to leverage and establish external partnerships that build clinical research, augment and strengthen existing research strengths and allow innovation in teaching and training.

The ANU Research and Innovation Portfolio (R&I) provides leadership and support of initiatives, building growth and impact in research and education outcomes.  They foster external partnerships which meet the University’s strategic goals; and by collaborating with College Deans to attract and retain an outstanding research cohort, equip the University with research facilities and infrastructure that create an environment that supports innovation. The R&I Portfolio includes the Research Services Division (RSD), Strategic Research Initiatives and Strategic Projects and Partnerships (SPP) groups.

The rewarding but challenging new role of Senior Research Strategic Development Manager will work across both these areas to provide specialist leadership in accessing health and medical science funding in order to improve overall discipline research performance, particularly positioning the University with respect to the Medical Research Futures Fund (MRFF) and other relevant external funding sources such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).

Contact person for this position is Douglas Robertson, Director, Research Services Division
