(Image from driverlayer.com)

The School

You will work closely with the Head of School (HOS) in maintaining her publication profile and developing key, strategic cross School projects to encourage interdisciplinary innovation in research and knowledge exchange and to assist in bringing together the best possible teams to articulate and address large-scale research questions, attracting external funding. You should have a PhD in a related discipline and have a strong academic grounding in an area of research that has interdisciplinary potential, with well-defined plans for developing independent research, as well as linking to the HOS’s own research profile and the School’s disciplines. International experience in Higher Education and a working knowledge of languages, preferably Chinese/Spanish is desirable. The post is available for 3 years.

More details at: http://www.liv.ac.uk/arts/sota-research/pgr/

The Post

This research associate role will work closely with the Head of School in maintaining her publication profile and developing key projects whilst she settles into the role at Liverpool, and in building cross School research and knowledge exchange projects that will attract external funding in coming years. The School has strong staff with significant potential for growth in collaborative research activity, likely to attract substantial external research funding. The role holder will work with the Head of School and Research Directors on strategic projects to encourage interdisciplinary innovation in research and knowledge exchange, and to assist in bringing together the best possible teams to articulate and address large scale research questions. The Research Associate must have a strong academic grounding in an area of research that has interdisciplinary potential, with well-defined plans for developing independent research at the University of Liverpool, as well as linking to the Head’s own research profile and the School’s disciplines. S/he must also have the flexibility of mind and the intellectual capacity to work with University of Liverpool researchers outside the School, and the Faculty/University/external partners where a research project requires a broader range of skills and expertise.

Links with Chinese and other key international university partners would be an advantage in creating project structures and collaborative funding applications. Language skills are highly desirable therefore.

The post will be hosted within one of the five academic departments within SOTA and will work closely with academic Research Leads and subject specialists, and will liaise with School Research and Finance Team and Faculty Research and KE Team as required.

The role will involve:
· Working closely with the HOS in maintaining her research programme and publication profile (40%)
· Development of strategic projects, including external funding applications (40%)
· Personal research and career development (20%)
