Do you have experience of supporting research activity and a thorough understanding of impact in the context of Higher Education? Do you possess experience of working with non-academic audiences, groups and organisations? Are you passionate about demonstrating the value of academic research to wider society?
This role aims to enhance the quality of, and build evidence for, the impact of research carried out across the School. This is primarily with a view to creating high quality impact case studies for the School’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF).
You will have three main areas of responsibility. First, to work with academic staff across the School to generate, record and organise evidence of impact arising from research and support the development of Pathways to Impact for research grant applications. Second, to carry out systematic reviews of impact excellence and best practice across the arts and humanities to inform strategic decisions about impact activity, including analysis of the REF impact criteria. Finally, to assist in the planning and delivery of public engagement activities such as workshops, public lectures and exhibitions, working with non-academic audiences to maximise their impact. You will be based at the University of Leeds and appropriate mentorship and career development support will be provided in line with career stage as part of the role.
