Key responsibilities

I am part of the RDS College Research Support team and am aligned to the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. Our team acts as first point of contact for College researchers’ general queries, as well as providing more specific advance and support. Where needed, we are a conduit for information and requests for support between the College and other specialist RDS members. It is our role to support the improvement of the research performance and reputation of the College and so the University.

How we can help our College researchers:

  • Supporting Dean of Research to achieve the strategic research objectives in the College
  • Coordination of key College research administration processes and communications through the College
  • Providing services and advice to researchers, directing questions and request to RDS Central team members as required
  • Working in close collaboration with the RDS Research Grants teams to ensure:
    • effective identification of research funding opportunities;
    • delivery of effective pre-award, grant development and application services; and
    • assistance in bringing together multidisciplinary groups to facilitate preparation of major grant applications to external funding bodies
  • Working with the Research Contracts and Grants Finance teams to deliver complete post-award support to researchers
  • Providing advice regarding University related policies and procedures
