The Research Contracts Team is looking for highly skilled Senior Research Contracts Specialists who are capable of leading high value, complex negotiations and, working with the Head of Research Contracts, lead and develop a team of professional research contracts staff. You will be expected to work autonomously, be creative in meeting challenges without precedent, and represent issues related to research contracts to all levels of University staff. The role combines specialist legal, commercial skills with sector-awareness and pragmatic decision-making on behalf of the institution.

The team are keen to receive applications from a diverse pool of applicants; whether you are currently a solicitor in private practice or an in-house team, already a research contracts professional in the HEI sector, or work with contracts elsewhere, if you have the skill and determination to step into a leadership role within a busy team then we’re keen to hear from you.

There are 2 positions available, one on an open ended basis, the other on a fixed term contract for one year.  Please indicate your preference in your application.

If you have questions about the role or your suitability then please do contact the Head of Research Contacts, Tom Morgan on or Senior Research Contracts Manager, Christine Nileshwar,  to arrange a telephone call.
