Do you have experience of working in a research support role? Are you a positive, hardworking and highly organised individual with a strong eye for detail? Would you like to join a team committed to delivering a high level of support to the strategic objectives of the Faculty during an exciting period of change?

We are looking for a professional and proactive individual who will provide high quality, customer-focussed research support from within the Faculty Research & Innovation Office (FRIO) where you will have the opportunity to make a valuable and significant contribution to the FRIO team and the Faculty at a time of significant change.

You will work within a small team of Senior Research Administrators and Grants Officers, taking a lead role to support costings and applications for research funding and the administration of awarded research projects. You will support the FRIO management team in the accurate reporting of research activity through the maintenance of records and the management of administrative and financial functions.

With experience in a research support role, you will have excellent organisational skills and experience of financial systems and procedures as well as a sound knowledge of a range of funders. A positive outlook, ability to work to deadlines and an understanding of prioritising tasks is essential, as is experience of working with costings and budgets.
