An exciting one-year fixed-term contract role (to start 01 January 2020) has become available to support the development of Early Career Research Staff at the University of Bristol. You will be joining the Academic Staff Development (ASD) team and will use your knowledge and expertise to design, implement and project manage development interventions, events and projects. The work will include determining measures of success and evaluating the impact of any interventions and will also include supporting the recruitment and development of our Vice Chancellors Fellows and may contribute to other areas of the team’s wider research staff development remit.
You will be reporting to the Head of Academic Staff Development and working alongside other staff development officers in the team drawing on their expertise supporting and developing the University research community.
