This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced grants management professional to join The George Institute for Global Health (TGI) at Imperial College London (ICL) in these important and early days of the TGI/ICL relationship.
TGI is 700+ people around the world, all focused on improving the health of millions of people worldwide. A medical research institute established 20 years ago, TGI manages projects in approximately 50 countries. TGI and ICL recently entered into a partnership agreement to explore how together we can challenge the status quo in healthcare, globally.
Collaborating with TGI colleagues globally and ICL staff, the role will be responsible for providing broad research management support to TGI’s staff. The incumbent will have a key role in maximising access of Institute’s researchers globally to European funding opportunities and be instrumental in establishing the Institute’s broader research support services in the UK.
Duties And Responsibilities
You will partner with colleagues to maximise UK and European grant opportunities by facilitating the preparation and submission of funding applications – including researching and disseminating information on funding opportunities, budget preparation in funding applications, uploading and updating applicant CVs and checking and updating reference sections. You will closely manage timelines and ensure compliance with TGI and ICL procedures.
You will use your analytical skills to track and monitor the spend on grant budgets, and coordinate post-award administration on existing awards. You will update relevant global TGI and ICL databases, and collaborate with global TGI colleagues on cross-regional funding opportunities.
You will have a Masters degree (or equivalent experience) in a scientific discipline related to the aims of The George Institute and a strong background in research management. You will have a deep knowledge of research grants and contracts, and pre- and post-award activities. A thorough understanding of UK funders is required, with knowledge of European funders an advantage. A sound knowledge of administrative processes ideally in a higher education environment is essential.
You will be just as comfortable working autonomously as collaborating within a team and have excellent interpersonal skills with a record of building effective working relationships. Attention to detail, the ability to juggle competing demands and flexibility to work outside usual office hours with global colleagues are all essential.
The post is full time and fixed-term for one year in the first instance.
