Marie Curie is the largest charitable funder of palliative and end of life care research. This is a key post in the Research Management Team that is responsible for the management and review of externally awarded grants, such as Marie Curie Research Centres, projects grants awarded as part of the Marie Curie Research Grants Scheme, fellowships and our new ‘state of the nation report’ initiative.

This includes monitoring grants through the review of annual and final reports, statements of expenditure and Researchfish submissions as well as developing relationships with the research teams to ensure that the next steps of research, notably the impact on (Marie Curie) policy and practice, is part of both Marie Curie’s and the research teams’ considerations from the start of the project or programme.

The post holder will also oversee service user involvement, reporting on key performance indicators and research impact measurement/analysis and on an infrequent basis will be expected to analyse UK grant data such as from the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) or from the UKCRC Health Research Classification System (HRCS).

You will be educated to degree level in a health or research related discipline and have a postgraduate degree, preferably PhD and/or substantial proven experience in research management through the delivery of grant schemes at government or charity research funding bodies or at universities / NHS Trusts.

A highly motivated and dedicated individual, you will be able to work to tight deadlines. You will be enthusiastic and positive and have excellent interpersonal skills and attention to detail as well as a proven ability to manage research grants, build relationships and measure outputs, outcomes and routes to impact.

We are in the process of reviewing the Marie Curie Research Strategy post COVID and the role is therefore offered for one year in the first instance.

What’s in it for you:

  • Continued access to NHS Pension Scheme (subject to eligibility)
  • Marie Curie Group Personal Pension Scheme
  • Season ticket loan
  • Loan schemes for bikes; computers and satellite navigation systems
  • Continuous development
  • Industry leading training programmes
  • Employee Assistance Programme
