We are looking for a proactive individual, who has a strong background in research management services and experience in developing and facilitating research projects. The person will have a record of accomplishment in preparing proposals/grant applications and facilitating research collaborations along with a sound understanding of the New Zealand research funding system and the tertiary education sector. Ideally, they will hold a PhD or equivalent relevant experience.

The role’s focus is to work with researchers to achieve key research objectives by building effective relationships with funding organisations, community and industry partners, seeking and procuring external research and consultancy funding and supporting research project leaders to deliver their research projects.

This individual will have specialist capability preferably in one or more of the following areas: health, humanities, business, or creative arts. They will need to be organised, possess high levels of initiative and solution-focus, and exercise effective writing, facilitation, communication and team-building skills. An understanding of Vision Mātauranga and demonstrated ability to reflect Māori needs, aspirations and contributions as they relate to research would be an advantage. The role sits within a broader established team supporting research development and capability building in the Research and Enterprise Office and across the university.

If you are research savvy, have demonstrated experience in and enjoy empowering others to confidently communicate the value and impact of their research endeavours, we want to hear from you.
