Level: Research Development Officer
The ADAPT Centre is seeking to appoint a Research Development Officer as part of the EU Team. The Research Officer is responsible for assisting Centre researchers to develop and write high-quality research proposals to access further European funding. S/he will manage existing and new research funding awards in Horizon 2020 and will evaluate success in line with the Centre’s EU objectives. This varied role provides the successful candidate with the opportunity to drive success in many funding instruments and scientific fields. The candidate must be capable of working alongside academic researchers and embedding him/herself in a research team to provide their expertise and specialist knowledge to drive effective proposal development. Given the cross-institutional nature of this role, the appointee will be required, from time to time, to travel to TCD, UCD and DIT. The post may also require occasional travel within the EU.
