York is a research-intensive university committed to strengthening our position as one of the world’s premier institutions for inspirational and life-changing research.
Due to increasing grant volumes and complexities, this is an opportunity to work in Research Grants and Contracts (RGC), developing specialist funder knowledge and contributing to the on-going development of Research Support at York during a period of significant change.
We are looking for someone that can combine excellent financial skills with equally strong interpersonal skills to provide guidance, manage the application process, financial administration and contractual compliance of research grants associated with a designated range of research grants/funders – initially UK Health funders (e.g. NIHR, NHS, etc). You will maintain a high level of organisation and develop expert understanding associated with these funders.
Educated to degree level, you will have significant administrative experience in a complex organisation and have knowledge of academic research processes and issues. You will be keen to develop and provide a high quality administrative service. You will work closely with colleagues in other support areas and in academic departments and liaise with funders on a regular basis.
Previous experience of working on research grants or knowledge of the requirements of research funders would be an advantage.
The post is available on a fixed-term basis for 3 years
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Anna Payne, RGC Team Leader (01904 324263)
