Research Facilitator 0.5 FTE

University of Roehampton - Department: Research Office

We are looking for a skilled Research Facilitator to join the University to support and develop research in the Department of Dance. Our research in Dance is internationally recognised, and was the top rated in the discipline in REF2014.

Working collaboratively, the successful candidate will provide practical support and advice to the academic community, particularly in relation to external funding bids, and the impact and dissemination of research, as well as contributing to the organisation of research events and profile raising.  Research Facilitators are based in academic departments and play a key link role between academics and the Research Office, and other support services within the University.

The successful candidate will have outstanding communication skills, be an effective team player and will be highly organised. Experience of working in a research environment in the arts, and specifically in Dance, is strongly desired. Research Facilitators may be research active themselves, and eligible for research support, subject to the quality and fit of their research.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the University at a time when we are building on our success in REF2014, as the UK’s most research intensive modern university. Our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened, and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.
