The main duties of the role are to conduct research under the supervision of senior colleagues and to contribute to the production of research. This will also include communicating the results of research to different groups through written reports and papers, presentations at conferences and other forums, and at workshops and other meetings. You will be required to assist in the identification and development of potential areas of research and the development of proposals for independent or collaborative research projects.

In addition at Grade 7 the post holder must:

  • Supervise the research activities of less experienced colleagues, providing expert advice and guidance
