Strategic Research Proposal Coordinators

Strategic Research Proposal Coordinators

Role Overview

Strategic Research Proposal Coordinators (SPRCs) primary role is supporting development of high-impact funding proposals to National and International funders. These roles manage the competitive funding application process and allow much longer lead-in times than those currently in operation. These roles will allow TU Dublin to target particular programmes where we have internationally verifiable track records and a high success rate by offering dedicated proposal development support for proposals of scale and/or proposal clusters.

Broadly, there are 4 aspects to the roles;

1. Identifying potential competitive funding opportunities for TU Dublin researchers across all disciplines, and particularly those opportunities where TU Dublin researchers could attract numbers of postgrads, postdocs or fellows

2. Assist TU Dublin researchers in developing their ideas into fundable national and European proposals.

3. Plan and coordinate development of these proposals (including time management, team development, writing, editing) so that they can dedicate appropriate time and effort required for success.

4. Concentrate on large ‘institutional’ proposals and development of ‘applications of scale’ with a focus on TU Dublin as the project coordinator.

Accordingly, these roles are key in the development of the TU Dublin Research Ecosystem and highly specialised in nature.

Closing Date

The closing date for applications is 5pm (Irish Time) on 25-Sep-2023. Late applications will not be accepted.
