Maynooth University is committed to a strategy in which the primary University goals of excellent research and scholarship and outstanding education are interlinked and equally valued. 
We are seeking to recruit a professional with experience of research grant proposal administration, research administration, communications or research development. Potential candidates may have gained their experience in government, industry or third level education sectors. The candidate will support pre-and post-award functions relating to externally funded research in particular the National agencies and Horizon 2020. The successful candidate will assist members of the academic community to source external funding opportunities, facilitate the preparation of proposals and the negotiation and management of contracts. In addition, we are seeking one candidate with skills suitable to promoting research to a wider audience and working with academics in developing their dissemination and outreach skills. It is expected that this candidate will work closely with the Communication’s Office in developing a Maynooth University Strategy for increasing research profile.
