Importantly, you will enjoy working with multiple teams from across the university, and will have the skills to support colleagues to develop supervision capability, and working closely with academics, knowledge exchange and professional teams to further excellent research capacity across the institution.

Application is by submission of a full curriculum vitae and a covering letter of application, addressing the job description and person specification.
