The University of Southampton is a research-intensive University, with annual research income in excess of £120 million. The Research Information and Systems team, based in Research and Innovation Services, provides support for key research systems utilised across the University. 

About the role 

We are recruiting a Research Information Systems Specialist to join the Research Information and Systems team to play the lead role in managing Pure, our Current Research Information System.

We expect the post holder to be closely involved in providing systems support for the University’s preparations and submission to Future Research Assessment Programmes (e.g. Research Excellence Framework). 

Whilst Pure support will be the main focus for the post holder, we would also expect them to provide additional support to the other systems that the team are responsible for, e.g. Worktribe.
