Funding Officer (1.0 FTE)

Updated: about 2 months ago
Deadline: today

As Funding Officer, you advise staff of the Faculty of Arts in exploring various national and international grant opportunities and nominations. You support them in preparing grant applications and provide substantive feedback on applications. You organise and coordinate activities that help to further develop our (international) research talents in the field of research funding. You coordinate the processes surrounding grant applications and nominations for prizes and memberships. You are the sounding board for the Faculty Board in terms of strategic positioning for research funding.

You are part of the Research & Impact department. This is the heart of the Faculty in terms of research policy and support. The department was recently established, so there is plenty of room for creative ideas on how we want to organise our work as a team. You are happy to think along on this. You also work together with the EU-funding team, talent consultants, the other Funding Officers within the University of Groningen (UG), research directors and Human Resources.

Your tasks are:

- advising and guiding our (international) researchers at individual and group level
- identifying the career stage of researchers and the matching strategy needed to work towards successful applications
- collecting and accessing all relevant information in the field of personal grants and other grant opportunities (NWO/EU/KNAW etc.)
- identifying new grant opportunities in the field of the Humanities and possible connections with other scientific disciplines
- mapping networks within and outside the UG and actively contributing to maintaining and expanding these networks
- analysing data on grant applications and research, and identifying opportunities for improving the Faculty's research policy.

The University of Groningen has a rich academic tradition dating back to 1614. This tradition yielded the first female student and the first female lecturer in the Netherlands, the first Dutch astronaut and the first president of the European Central Bank. Our strong and vital roots are in the north of the Netherlands and we cherish this special connection with the region.

The Faculty of Arts educates the academic professional of the future. A professional with the knowledge and skills to analyse, interpret and solve societal problems in a rapidly changing world. In short: a professional who can make a difference. Over 6,000 students and 700 staff members work here at the frontiers of knowledge. The Faculty offers a wide range of degree programmes, with 16 Bachelor's programmes and over 19 Master's programmes. Our research, which is internationally widely acclaimed, covers the fields of Archaeology, Cultural Studies, History, International Relations, Media Studies, Language and Literary Studies.
