The Centre Research Development Manager (Physical Science of Life) post is an exciting new position in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences (NMES). The successful candidate will work closely with the Directors of the newly formed   Centre for the Physical Science of Life, and be responsible for taking the lead on developing high quality research grant applications, including drafting non-scientific sections of the bids, which will underpin and expand the ambitious activities of the centre.  

The research grant applications this post will help develop and support will range in size and scope, including very large, multi-million pound bids with internal and external collaborators (including HEI’s, industry partners etc.), cover a variety of domestic and international funding bodies, and be led by academics across several disciplines, including Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics.  

Other key functions will be providing high quality support and advice to academic staff, contributing to research strategy development, monitoring research performance, and strengthening relationships with funding bodies and external collaborators.  

This post would suit somebody who has experience of managing a large research grant or a Postdoctoral researcher who wishes to stay in science but step away from practical work and not be a primary investigator.  

The Centre Research Development Manager will report to the Head of Research Support. 

This post will be offered on an indefinite contract. 

This is a part-time post - 50% full time equivalent
