Job Title: Senior Research Manager
Unit: Esade Research Office
Creating world-class research is a fundamental part of life at ESADE. We undertake top-quality research that influences business leaders, policy-makers, non-profit organisations and other researchers across the world. Through our research support team, we provide a research infrastructure that offers specialist advice and guidance to all faculty who need support for their research, and to organisations that would like to co-produce research with ESADE faculty.
Esade is currently looking for a senior research manager who will join a highly active and interdisciplinary research environment and will be part of the Esade Research Office team.
Based in ESADE’s Sant Cugat Campus, the research manager will support the development and implementation of projects and innovation activities and will facilitate the management of research outputs. We are seeking a candidate with the ability to handle multiple projects, exceptional organizational skills, self-motivation, attention to detail and the ability to work with limited supervision using own initiative. The ideal candidate should have sound knowledge of both pre-award and post-award phases of grants management, and should have the flexibility to manage European as well as National calls.
Your Main Responsibilities
The successful candidate will be expected to assume the following responsibilities:
· Identification of new funding opportunities at national, European, and international level.
· Management of proposals for national, regional, and European grants (including Horizon Europe, Marie Curie and ERC grants): support in the application process, budget preparation and validation, etc.
· Offering personalized support to researchers throughout the pre-award.
· Monitoring of projects and financial reporting to funding bodies.
· For the coordinated European projects, support to the project management and coordinator with contractual matters (Consortium Agreement, Grant Agreement, Amendments, administrative and financial coordination tasks of the consortium, etc).
· Preparing documentation for financial audits and liaising with the auditor.
· Any other administrative, legal and/or financial management related to the projects.
Candidates should hold a degree in any field, although the fields of business management, economics or communication would be an advantage – and more importantly have a proven track record in managing research projects.
We are looking for a team player, client oriented, proactive candidate with exceptional organizational skills, self-motivation and great attention to detail.
Minimum 5 years’ demonstrable experience in financial management, justifications, and audits of research projects and/or in the management of proposals (application procedures) both national and European.
The candidate will need excellent Spanish and English language skills in reading and writing. Knowledge of Catalan is highly desirable for the position.
The position is full-time (37.5 hours), with a permanent contract. The position is based at the Esade Sant Cugat campus (a short Metro ride outside the city of Barcelona), with a competitive salary based on experience. Benefits include subsidized lunch and a generous holiday entitlement.
