We are seeking to appoint a Business Development and Research Manager (BDRM) based in the Mathematics Applications Consortium for Science and Industry (MACSI), within the Department of Mathematics & Statistics. Contract initially for 8 months.

MACSI is a research centre which applies mathematics to diverse real-world problems and has strong links with industrial partners.

The BDRM will be responsible for ensuring the smooth operation of MACSI, and lead efforts to diversify its funding sources to ensure future sustainability. The BDRM will also be the first point of contact for industrial partners. Whilst the role will primarily be based within MACSI, the BDRM will contribute to department activities, such as outreach and Athena SWAN. Additional responsibilities to secure funding, engage with industry and support research activities in other areas in the Faculty of Science + Engineering may also arise.
