Faculty research Development Officer Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences


Personal Statement

Maeva leads on the delivery of activities that support the Faculty’s research income ambitions. Overseeing the Faculty’s growing income portfolio (ca £4m), this includes identifying and disseminating strategic funding opportunities, providing tailored support for strategic funding bids, design and coordination of Faculty peer review and selection processes, organising funding-related events, and providing research income management information via income performance reports.

As the key point of contact for Principle Investigators and Co-Investigators developing strategic funding bids in HSS, she coordinates support across central departments (such as the Research Partnerships and Development Team and the Research Support Office) and the School Research Support Teams.

Maeva supports researcher development activities through her coordination of the Faculty ECR Network (intranet link), staff training and induction events and development of digital resources, particularly to support research funding (intranet link).

She also supports aspects of the Faculty’s REF submission and planning for future research assessment exercises.
