THE ROLE OF THE PORTFOLIO MANAGER
As an EPSRC Portfolio Manager, you would work with the Engineering and Physical Sciences research community to achieve EPSRC's aim to put the UK at the forefront of International Research.
You would be responsible for one of EPSRC's many research portfolios, from mathematics to materials science, from information technology to energy. Your role will be varied, building relationships with industries and universities, managing our decision making process to ensure we fund research of the highest quality, planning and implementing community events to foster new, innovative, research programmes.
You will help to develop and structure ideas for future activities in a strongly team based organisation as well as working with other Government Departments and other Research Councils.
This role will broaden your skills by giving you the opportunity to manage your own projects and activities.
The right candidates will have a STEM background. We will consider high calibre graduates and post graduates who can demonstrate the potential to succeed, ideally with experience in a science or engineering related field or holding a PhD. The most important aspect is that you are a creative thinker, an excellent communicator and have the ability to effectively manage your time.
Travel in the UK is an important part of the role.
Candidates must have the right to work in the UK; EPSRC does not hold a sponsorship licence.
