Working with the CEDI Lead, Faculty Research Manager and Research Development Manager you will be responsible for undertaking a strategic review of current Research Culture related activities across the faculty identifying gaps and developing initiatives to address these gaps. As Research Culture Support Manager, you will create clear ownership, expertise and accountability for delivery of initiatives and improvements to Research Culture. You will also work with the King’s central Research Culture team and similar posts in other faculties to ensure King’s initiatives are communicated and embedded at the IoPPN and that examples of best practice are shared across the college.
It is an exciting time to join the team as we work towards establishing an open, positive and inclusive Research Culture at the IoPPN and ensuring our existing success in CEDI are embedded within our diverse research portfolio. This role is a great opportunity if you are an enthusiastic, and collaborative worker interested in expanding your knowledge around EDI and Research Culture in Higher Education.
