The integration of discovery biology, clinical research and patient care within a single Faculty, together with the devolution of the Health and Social care budget to Greater Manchester, provides the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health with unprecedented opportunities to develop new research programmes that will have a transformational impact on the health and well-being of our population.
As a Strategic Funding Manager, you will join an experienced team tasked with supporting the development, co-ordination and implementation of the Faculty research strategy. Our integrated structure and eight strategic Research Domains allow us to drive large-scale, collaborative activities and tackle some of the biggest scientific and healthcare challenges faced by society. You will work closely with academics and clinicians across a range of disciplines and will be instrumental in helping to build and support a diverse range of research communities, encouraging inter-disciplinary working across traditional boundaries. You will help to develop and support collaborative research interactions with particular emphasis on delivering a transformational increase in the profile, grant income and research outputs of the Faculty. You will provide high-level, strategic support to academics from the initial development of their ideas through to their securing downstream funding.
You should possess excellent communication and organisational skills, combined with a strong science background (PhD or equivalent) and a thorough understanding of the UK funding landscape. Ideally, you will have experience of working in a strategic role and will have a proven track record of managing complexity and liaising effectively across multiple groupings and networks.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
