The GW4 Alliance is seeking an experienced research and innovation development specialist to join our dynamic team based in Bristol.

The GW4 Alliance brings together four of the most research-intensive and motivated universities in the UK; the universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter. Together, we have the research and innovation capacity, capability and inspiration to deliver cross-sectoral partnerships and solve global challenges at a scale not possible by a single university. We have the commitment to respond to major policy developments, attract global talent through doctoral training and work in partnership to drive innovation and globally competitive R&D.

This career opportunity will suit a dynamic individual with ambition and a keen, broad interest research management within higher education.

You should have experience in research, and in research administration and/or strategic management, ideally obtained in a higher education institution and/or funding agency.
