Neuroscience, Cell biology and the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA)


The Departments Neuroscience, Cell biology and the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA) are pre-clinical departments at the UMC Groningen, that perform fundamental research and focus on the molecular and cell biology mechanisms.

A 0,8 Fte position for a Research Development Office Assistant is available.
The Research Development Office (RDO) aims at supporting scientists in raising funds to pursue their scientific activities. The RDO is managed through the following functional areas:
1. Funding strategy
2. Research Funding Administration and Management
3. Intellectual Property
4. Business Development
A specialized team of professionals provides support to the scientists of these three departments on a daily basis and builds the necessary relations with the different offices of the UMCG engaged with grants and funding. The team is composed of two Research Officers (funding opportunities, international cooperation, communication, legal affairs and ethics), a Technical Transfer Officer (business development and valorization) and a Financial Officer (finances, reporting and monitoring). With the scientific goals at heart, the RDO attempts to remove most of the bureaucratic, managerial, legal and financial load from scientists and students so that they can focus on their research.

- Provide administrative support to RDO staff during grant applications and project implementation, including reporting to funding agencies
- Support the organization of events (meetings, seminars, etc)
- Write short texts for the website, newsletter and social media
- Maintain the document filing system updated
- Liaise with UMCG support offices on behalf of the RDO
- Updating contact lists
- Gather data for statistical purposes and reporting
