About the role:
Do you have experience of working for a research funder? Do you want to use this experience and broaden your horizons beyond traditional research management? If so, then we have a fantastic opportunity for you.
The Grants Manager is responsible for looking after a large diverse and varied portfolio of grants, including research and non-research grants. This includes a mixture of traditional response-mode funding and, increasingly, working closely with applicants to shape larger strategic awards. The post-holder is responsible for managing the entire life cycle of a grant, all the way from the pre-award stage through to post-award monitoring and evaluation.
You will have research management experience and be confident operating independently. You will also be able to lead and deliver on large projects, with appropriate support, and work closely with important senior external and internal stakeholders.
Additionally, you will have an advanced research degree (PhD) in a relevant scientific discipline. Excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to establish good working relationships are also essential.
Applications will be reviewed on an on-going basis and we reserve the right to close the role prior to the closing date, should a suitable applicant be found. Therefore, you are encouraged to apply right away, to avoid disappointment.
