Overview Of Role

We are currently recruiting a Grant Development Manager to join the Research Grants team to help secure increased support for our research portfolio addressing key agricultural challenges including climate change adaptation, pest and disease management strategies, sustainable agricultural practices, food security and nutrition and digital agriculture. Your role will be to provide expert support and advice to the scientists within your dedicated scientific strategic areas and across our research sites; engage in horizon scanning activities to proactively identify funding opportunities for our scientists and assist them with the completion and submission of research funding bids and compliance requirements to a variety of funders.
