Greenwich Research and Enterprise is the University’s central office responsible for developing a supportive research culture and establishing links with industry and enterprise. GRE works across the following service areas: research development services, enterprise development services, commercial and IP services, and business support services.

The University is investing in expanding its research development services and recognises that high-quality support is pivotal to its research environment and is now recruiting a Research Development Officer to join the GRE Research Development Services team. The job holder will join an established team serving the four University faculties. It is expected that the jobholder will work extensively with one faculty and at present, we are particularly looking to strengthen support to two faculties, the faculty of Education, Health and Human Sciences and the Faculty of Business.

This role will deliver on the University’s aspirations to continue the growth in its research income from private and public funding sources (primarily the Research Councils, Charities, Learned Societies, and Government Bodies/Departments) as well as industry, by assisting applicants across the faculties to develop and secure significant new research awards. You will take the lead in ensuring that proposals are of the highest possible quality, including project management support for the University of Greenwich co-ordinated bids, provision of non-scientific texts, costing and budget development, facilitation of the peer review process, and a proposal read-through service. You will liaise with funders to identify potential opportunities raising the awareness of academic staff in Centres and Institutes.

You will have experience of working with academic researchers and funders of research as well as an excellent knowledge of research policies and funding programmes.
