Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS) located at the Botnar

financial data on online application systems. You will advise PIs of sponsor
guidelines and liaise with Research Services to ensure successful application
submission as well as distributing information about funding opportunities.



You must be educated to at least A level standard (or equivalent) with GCSE
grade C or above (or equivalent) in Maths & English. You will have the ability
to analyse, interpret and respond effectively to detailed written
