A vacancy exists for a REF Systems Co-ordinator.  The University of Nottingham is investing in the systems that will support its REF2021 submissions, and ensuring that they are aligned with other systems which support the broader research ecosystem. 

Based in the Research Strategy Unit of the Research and Innovation department, the REF Systems Co-ordinator will report to and support the REF Manager in the configuration and population of a new web-based module to support the delivery of REF2021. 

The new module will be one element of a larger Research Information System (RIS) that is being developed and implemented to support the University research ecosystem.  The role holder will be required to work with IS to ensure that the existing systems which currently support are appropriately maintained and enhanced as required for REF purposes until such time as the RIS module is tested and fully operational.

The role holder will work with academic, technical and professional services staff across the University to ensure full account is taken of all REF-related requirements for the new module, develop an implementation plan which includes a robust testing phase, ensure that appropriate communications and training is in place, and manage the migration of data to the new module. 

The role holder will also work with the REF Manager and the Research Strategy Manager (Analytics) to generate and analyse reports from the various systems to support strategic decision making.

This position is based on a fixed-term, part time contract working 21.75 hours per week for a period of 18 months.
