EMBL is looking for a Grants Data and Research Information Officer, based in the Grants Office of the UK site, EMBL-EBI (nr. Cambridge, UK), but will collaborate with many teams across the whole of EMBL.
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) was set up to promote molecular biology across Europe, and to create a centre of excellence for training Europe's leading young molecular biologists. It is a non-profit, intergovernmental organisation funded by 27 EMBL member states and two associate member states along with funding secured from external funding bodies.
The complex funding landscape at EMBL means that a number of reporting requirements need to be met, including to EMBL member states and to external funding bodies. Your role will have particular responsibility for developing and curating the application and grants data in our Current Research Information System. You will be responsible for developing the grants data standards and associated guidance in line with strategic and compliance needs of the institute, for the data quality curation of the data, and for developing management information reports to be used both across EMBL and in our communication with external funders.
The EMBL-EBI Grants Office is a friendly, highly communicative team, currently comprising of seven Grants Officers, one HR-Finance Systems Administrator, and the Grants Office Supervisor. Your role will be line managed by the EMBL-EBI Grants Office Supervisor with joint functional accountability to the EMBL Head of Grants based in Heidelberg, Germany. The work is varied, and you will have the autonomy to develop and improve processes in a dynamic, international working environment.
At EMBL-EBI you can apply your talent and passion to accelerate science and tackle some of humankind's greatest challenges. EMBL-EBI, part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, is a worldwide leader in the storage, analysis and dissemination of large biological datasets. We provide the global research community with access to publicly available databases and tools which are crucial for the advancement of healthcare, food security, and biodiversity.
We are located on the Wellcome Genome Campus, alongside other prominent research and biotech organisations, and surrounded by beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside. This is a highly collaborative and inclusive community where our employees enjoy a relaxed atmosphere. We are committed to ensuring our employees feel valued, supported and empowered to reach their professional potential.
