About the team: 

This team provides dedicated research grant support and expertise to Research Grants Administrators and academics within the School of the Humanities and Social Sciences’ departments, faculties and centres.

They assist with the preparation of complex applications - budgets, eligibility of costs, X5 - and with post award activities and management. Assistance is given in resolving administrative issues throughout the project lifecycle.

The team proactively engages with the changing regulatory framework of research grants and generates relevant information / resources to support an efficient, accurate application / grant management process.

Who to contact:

The team is led by Daniel Starling, Senior School Research Grant Administrator, who can be contacted for expertise and guidance on both research grant applications and best practice in grant management.

Rachel Blunn, School Research Grant Administrator is the primary contact for advice on, and the costing of, research grant applications. Assistance is offered either remotely or by site visit. Queries can be received on all pre award matters. Bespoke training on the X5 system is offered to both new and existing users.

Jennifer Ryan, Major Projects Advisor, is the primary contact for advice and expertise on post award queries and best practice, and for assistance with monitoring and reporting as projects progress.
