Institute of Clinical and Applied Health Research - Research Development Manager
The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) and the Faculty of Health and Social Care (FHSC) at the University of Hull have an exciting opportunity for an outstanding individual to help develop the research of the new Institute for Clinical & Applied Health Research (ICAHR) at the University of Hull.
We have ambitious plans for research growth in biomedical, applied health, clinical research and health technology at the University of Hull. This growth is supported and enabled by a £28m investment by the University of Hull in a new Health Campus development and the establishment of the Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research (ICAHR). The formation of the Institute will be accompanied by a major investment in academic and clinical academic staff, and the establishment of strong methods and support infrastructure (statistics, trials, etc.). From Autumn 2017, the Institute will be partly based in the brand new Allam Medical building, which is currently under construction. Alongside this investment, HYMS and FHSC will establish themselves as two Schools within a new Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Hull, which will form by August 2017.
HYMS’ academic and clinical researchers at the University of Hull have a strong reputation for the quality and impact of their work, with research areas spanning applied health (including health inequalities, and palliative care), clinical specialisms (including respiratory, cardiology, vascular surgery, diabetes and cancer), and biomedical research. FHSC has a rapidly expanding research portfolio with a focus on major disease, health problems and health technology. Both faculties were top performers in the University of Hull’s REF 2014.
We are seeking an experienced research development professional with specialist knowledge of clinical and applied health research and funders to support research development and growth in the new Institute. Your principal responsibilities will be to support Associate Deans for Research, School Directors of Research, academic and clinical staff and the University of Hull’s Director of Research to co-ordinate large collaborative proposals and other major initiatives. You will also seek to further develop strategic research links with the Hull & East Yorkshire NHS Hospitals Trust (HEY) and other NHS partners.
We are seeking a dynamic individual comfortable with navigating across a range of organisations and able to gain the support and trust of a wide range of academic and clinical colleagues and funders. You will need to have excellent interpersonal and partnership working skills and sufficient resilience to apply yourself in a changing environment as the Institute and new Faculty of Health Sciences are translated from vision to reality. You will need to be highly organised and skilled at prioritising, and you must be able to use initiative and work effectively under pressure.
This is an outstanding opportunity for the right person to help shape and deliver the future vision of the Institute of Clinical and Applied Health Research. The role will be primarily based at the University of Hull, but will involve a regular presence in the Daisy Building at Castle Hill Hospital alongside the HEY R&D Office, together with occasional travel to other HYMS sites including the University of York.
To apply for this position, please submit a current CV and covering letter with your online application.
For an informal discussion please contact John Busby, HYMS’ Chief Operating Officer (email@example.com, tel: 01904 321648 / 01482 464708), or Dr Maggie McGowan, University of Hull Director of Research (M.McGowan@hull.ac.uk).
