Join our Research Governance and Compliance Team

The University of Bath is committed to driving high quality research underpinned by the highest standards of research governance, integrity and ethics.

Our research is helping to change the world for the better. We work in partnership to help create a healthier, more sustainable and connected future for us all, which is one of the reasons why it's so important that we recognise that the quality of any research environment is dictated by the policies, codes of practice, processes and governance arrangements that underpin research behaviours and practices.

This new team will have responsibility for the strategic oversight of research governance policies and processes, monitoring compliance with integrity and ethical standards and contributing to a positive research culture. This is a really exciting and unique opportunity to join a Team as it is being established. 

The Research Governance and Compliance Team will play a critical role in the University, working across faculties, Centres, Institutes, and professional services. On establishing this Team, the following recruitment opportunities have emerged:

  • Head of Research Governance and Compliance

  • Research Compliance and Assurance Manager

  • Research Integrity Manager

  • Research Ethics Officer

We would love to hear from you if you have experience of upholding the highest standards of research integrity and ethics to facilitate research including research in health and social care. These roles will make a major contribution in developing our processes, principles and policies to contribute towards a positive research culture. We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have a proven track record in managing ethics processes, engaging with the NHS Trusts, setting up and monitoring clinical trials or knowledge of ‘Trusted Research’ including export control and NSI Act. 

If you have a background in research or research management in an academic or NHS setting we would also be interested in hearing from you.
