Research Adviser - Health Science (Wellington)

RESEARCH and ENTERPRISE DIVISION

RESEARCH and ENTERPRISE OFFICE

Who we are

Turning 150 years old this year, the University of Otago is New Zealand's first and oldest University. Ranked within the top 1% of universities in the world, it has a strong teaching and research tradition and well-established national and international linkages. It is also one of New Zealand's largest universities, with over 20,000 students, assets in excess of $1.6 billion and 4,000 full time equivalent staff based in Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and Invercargill.

Research makes a difference: to our lives, to our economy, to our society and to our environment. At the University of Otago, we have a strong history of research and scholarship from our foundation in 1869 and we are proud to be one of New Zealand's most research intensive universities.

The Research and Enterprise Office (R&E) supports and assists researchers in the identification of funding opportunities, partnering with business, grant applications, and the establishment of research contracts. We work closely with academic staff, students and Otago Innovation Ltd (the University's wholly-owned commercialisation arm) to foster a culture of enterprise and collaboration. Since its formation in 2011, R&E has grown research income from $88M to over $120M, through an extended period of significant change in government strategy and investment.

The role

In this role based on our Wellington campus, you will provide high-level advice and assistance to academic staff in the development of research funding applications and the management of research projects. This role also negotiates contracts that maximise external research income, publication and intellectual property outcomes.

Your skills and experience

To be successful in this key role, you will have a university postgraduate research degree (ideally PhD), and have extensive working knowledge of the academic and research environment in New Zealand. You will also be able to demonstrate:

  • strategic project planning and implementation skills, in an academic or business environment;
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills, including experience in writing and evaluating research proposals;
  • skill in planning and managing a wide range of projects and clients simultaneously; and
  • an enthusiastic, professional, client-focussed approach to working.

A background relevant to Health Science will be an advantage.

Further Details

This is a full time, permanent role based in Wellington.

We offer competitive salary, 5 weeks annual leave, a 6.75% superannuation scheme, and the ability to achieve a real work/life balance.
