Full Time

The Rosalind Franklin Institute has a unique mission to develop novel technologies which will advance life science, and ultimately human health. This mission can only be achieved by working closely with industrial and academic partners in a range of modes.  

We are looking for a Head of Collaborations and Partnerships who will maximise the benefits of collaborations and partnerships between the Institute and Industry, academic partners, and suppliers.  

The ideal candidate will have experience of working in technology development or the pharmaceutical industry, and of facilitating partnerships from early relationship building to delivery of contracts and evaluation.  

The candidate will develop a strong sense of the strategic vision for the Institute, be able to develop frameworks for engaging partners which will enable us to meet our charitable objectives, and to contribute to the vision for the next phase of the organisation.

This is a unique opportunity to join a new Institute at an incredibly exciting time, and to have real impact on projects of international significance in science. 

We are committed to diversity in all aspects of our work.  We welcome requests to discuss flexible working possibilities (for example, flexible or compressed hours, elements of remote working) for this position, and will work hard to accommodate where possible.
