The Research and Enterprise (R&E) Directorate is the University department responsible for central management of the University’s activities and strategy in research and knowledge exchange, and for providing comprehensive support to academic departments in their research and impact activities. Its primary purpose is to mobilise the University’s research and knowledge base in pursuit of excellence and financial sustainability, and to ensure that its research skills, knowledge and know-how benefit external users. Within R&E, the Research and Knowledge Exchange Contracts Team look after a wide range of contractual agreements and negotiations on behalf of the University, ranging from initial non-disclosure agreements to complex research and commercial collaborations with University partners.
We have an exciting opportunity for talented professionals to join the Research and Knowledge Exchange Contracts team as an Administrator.
The roles provide the opportunity for an interesting and varied portfolio of research contract related work, focused across a wide variety of academic disciplines. Under supervision, tasks will include arranging signatures, sending out approved drafts, chasing up outstanding matters and general office administrative tasks.
