The Research Awards team, within the Research Division, has specific responsibility for managing a portfolio of research projects from a range of external funding bodies. The team works to bridge the requirements of its research community and those of external funders/regulators and the LSE's own financial regulations.

 

The post-holder will have oversight for the key stages of research award management from the point a project is awarded funding through to the completion and closure of the project, ensuring compliance at each stage. The post-holder will work collaboratively with other team members and key academic and professional service staff in the School providing post award and financial support across a portfolio of academic departments and research centres to ensure the effective delivery of LSE’s research projects. The post-holder will work with existing systems and processes but be able to contribute to the enhancement and development these systems.
