Job Details

Research Information Officer

Medical Sciences Divisional Office, JR Hospital, Headington, Oxford OX2 9DU

Grade 7: £33,309 – £40,927 per annum (pro-rata for part-time)

Would you like to help support Oxford’s medical sciences research while developing your skills in research information management? During a period of maternity leave, we are seeking to provide additional specialist support to a friendly team that manage research funding applications, projects and reporting, by appointing a Research Information Officer. The post offers insight into the wide breadth of research activities undertaken by the Medical Sciences Division and the ways in which effective data management can facilitate our research.

Reflecting the work and needs of the Research Strategy and Funding Team, you will focus on data in two main strands: research funding (both internal and external) and ensuring open access to our published research. In both there are existing systems in the University, but we are continually seeking ways to improve the completeness and usefulness of the data, to add value by combining data sources, and thus to answer questions from our funders and our leadership teams.

You will work with colleagues both within this team and in central research support to enable us to meet these needs more effectively, implementing solutions that make efficient use of existing University systems while respecting the constraints of other teams. For our open access responsibilities, you will also help to identify our progress in responding to changing funder requirements and the factors that help or hinder our compliance. By building relationships with colleagues within and beyond the Division, and better understanding their needs, you will have the opportunity both to learn the context of their work and to contribute to systems development.

You will need to identify the relevant data from multiple sources, assess its completeness or how it might be supplemented, manipulate it to address questions arising, and document workflow to assist team members with common requirements. You will be expected to build specialist knowledge of University systems, from which you can provide guidance on best practice and share learning and process improvement. You will be encouraged to join one or more ‘communities of practice’ within the University’s research support network.

You should be educated to degree level, with previous experience of data management against stakeholder requirements and deadlines. You will be able to work collaboratively with colleagues in complementary roles to find practical solutions. With an eye for detail, you will also have excellent numerical skills and the ability to manipulate complex data.

If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, further information on this position and how to apply can be found in the job description.

The post is a full-time position but applicants are welcome to discuss possibilities for flexible working arrangements (minimum 0.5FTE) and/or a secondment from an existing post.

Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Monday 29th November 2021 can be considered. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
