In order to carry out this role effectively, you will have proven experience within Research Management or Research Funding supporting academic staff in EU and overseas funding proposals and awards, through which you will have gained specialist knowledge of research activity and management within Higher Education and of Higher Education funding streams. Further to this we will also expect you to demonstrate a good understanding of the EU Framework Programme and a specialist knowledge of Horizon 2020 requirements.
The successful candidate will possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills in order to form credible relationships with senior staff, including the PVCs, Deans, Research Directors and Heads of Departments/Schools.
