MarRI-UK Programme Manager (352962)
 

Salary range: £41,526 - £51,034
FTE: 1
Term: Fixed (12 months)  
Closing Date:9 April 2021

Work undertaken by industry and academia has sought to shape an initiative called MarRI-UK, which addresses the lack of coordination and resource in maritime research and development. MarRI-UK will focus on research and innovation within mid TRL levels to address the ‘valley of opportunity’ between ‘discovery and research’ and ‘commercialisation’ of Maritime Technologies and Systems.

MarRI-UK will be hosted by the University of Strathclyde and is looking for a Programme Manager to provide leadership of MarRI-UK projects and programmes. This will be undertaken by working closely with the MarRI-UK members, funding bodies, and other stakeholders. Although the position will be based in Glasgow, remote-working will be required until normal business resumes. In the longer-term travel may be expected as MarRI-UK has a national remit.

Whilst funding for this position is guaranteed for 1 year, the postholder will be expected to drive the growth and income of MarRI-UK and for the role to become self-sustaining in the longer term. Continual employment will be offered either within MarRI-UK or one of the partner organisations.

To be considered for the role, you will have a good honours degree and PhD/higher degree (or equivalent professional experience), with substantial project management experience within a relevant research and innovation or maritime environment, e.g. industry, commerce, the public sector or the higher education sector. You will have experience in writing proposals to secure funding and you will have proven analytical and interpretational skills with experience of collating, writing, and presenting complex reports. You will be an excellent communicator with confidence in presenting to diverse audiences and able to influence a variety of stakeholders. You will have the ability to manage and prioritise your own workload, and work as part of a team.
