Research Funding Manager (Interim)
As the interim Research Funding Manager (maternity cover), I support implementation and development of the Medical Sciences Division’s research strategy, with specific responsibility for the Division's internal research funding streams. I am Secretary of the Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF), the Medical Sciences Internal Fund (MSIF) and the John Fell Fund MSD sub-committee. Among other funding schemes, I also administer the COVID-19 Research Response Fund.
I support the Head of the Research Strategy and Funding team and the Strategic Bids Manager with applying and reporting to external funders for large and strategic grants. I also lead the Division's coordinated bids processes to select Oxford’s candidates for external funding when the number of applicants is restricted by the funder.
I started my career in Research Support in Oxford University's Humanities Division, coming from a research background, as a doctoral student, Junior Research Fellow and then post-doctoral researcher in the department of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics. I joined the Medical Sciences Division in March 2022 in this role.
