Job summary

The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity (PETRAS NCE) is a strategic initiative funded by EPSRC on behalf of UKRI via the Strategic Priorities Fund, to provide a national capability that enables the UK to become a world-leader in IoT and associated systems security through new knowledge and deep expertise creation.  

 

PETRAS NCE will build on PETRAS’s work with 11 university partners and over 110 industrial and government User Partners, growing to an anticipated 20 university and 200 user partners, managing 60+ projects. It will operate as an autonomous centre, self-administering calls and funding contracts – operating effectively as a mini-funding body. The Centre will run two external Strategic Research Fund (SRF) – total £7m – calls that will be open to all UK HEIs, plus a responsive mode funding mechanism.

Duties and responsibilities

PETRAS NCE is currently recruiting two Impact Champions (Business Partnership Executives): one vacancy at UCL STEaPP and one vacancy at Imperial College London, but they serve all PETRAS NCE university partners. 

 

This role is primarily externally-facing, and is to stimulate collaboration, growth of the Centre’s activities and impact generation by brokering connections and promoting information flow to and from the Centre, to partners outside and the greater community.

The successful candidate must have experience in establishing and maintaining good relationships with project stakeholders including senior managers, funding agencies, and technical specialists. You will have excellent communication skills and be a self starter with the ability able to work openly across a broad community of stakeholders. Experience of foresight activities, organising workshops and mapping research and technology landscape is desirable.
