The Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Funding Panel is responsible on behalf of the Research Performance and Management Committee (RPMC) for providing internal funding and support to ensure the University maximises opportunities for investing internal funds in projects that support knowledge exchange (KE) in line with the BU2025 Research Principles.
We are seeking expressions of interest (EoIs) for the Chair, Deputy Chair and Panel members for the new panel.
Chairs should be members of the Professoriate – this is extended to Associate Professors for the Deputy Chair role. Applications from underrepresented groups (minority ethnic, declared disability) are particularly welcome.
EoIs for Panel members are open to the wider academic community, not just the Professoriate.
Application: EoIs will be reviewed against selection criterion which includes knowledge and experience of knowledge exchange, innovation and impact, experience of chairing meetings and plans for leading the research agenda across the university.
EoIs for the Chair and Deputy Chair roles should consist of a short case (maximum length of one page) outlining suitability for the role. These should be submitted to the KE & Innovation Fund mailbox by the deadline of 5pm on 23rd January 2023.
EoIs for Panel member roles should consist of a short case (maximum length of half a page) outlining suitability for the role. These should be submitted to the KE & Innovation Fund mailbox by the deadline of 5pm on 23rd January 2023.
The successful candidates for the Chair and Deputy Chair roles will be required to attend an orientation meeting with Deputy VC Tim McIntyre-Bhatty on Thursday 9th March at 10am.
Please note that applications for Panel members will be processed following the successful recruitment of the above role- this is likely to be after 6th March 2023.
