Build your career in research management with us
LGC is an international leader in the extended life sciences sector, including human healthcare, agri-food and the environment dating back to 1842. We have two places for life science/health and care graduates to join our new 22-month Graduate Scheme in Research Management from October 2019. The scheme is based in LGC’s Grant Management Group where we manage research schemes for the National Institute for Health Research (www.nihr.ac.uk) from offices in South West London (Twickenham).
What we offer to graduates on our scheme
You will receive training in the launch, assessment and monitoring of research funding. You will lead projects on behalf of the NIHR, the nation’s largest funder of health and care research. We see the chance to deliver projects as the best way for you to learn what it takes to be an effective manager. You will be mentored and there will be a choice of projects to pitch for - an opportunity for you to hone your skills within a specialism. On completion, you will be ready to take your career to the next stage, having acquired a comprehensive understanding of research management.
