Job description

As Research Funding Officer you will be part of the team responsible for the administration of the multi-million-pound response mode funding programme for discovery cancer research. Reporting to the Research Funding Manager, you will assist with the processing of funding applications, their review by external experts and the charity’s Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC), the administration and financial management of the resulting awards, and assessing and reporting on the outputs and outcomes of the charity’s £190 million research funding portfolio.

If you have broad knowledge of the cancer research field and the funding environment, excellent and up-to-date scientific understanding, particularly of cellular and molecular biology and understanding of research funding processes and principles, including peer review and conflicts of interest, then this is the role for you!

So, if you’re up for the challenge and are excited about becoming part of Team Worldwide, we want to hear from you! 

Who are we? Worldwide Cancer Research is a small charity with immense ambition.

Sadly, 1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. For us, that’s 1 in 2 too many. We know that bold research will cure cancer. That’s why we fund the brightest minds around the world in their quests to conquer cancer.

Being a small charity with currently 40 employees allows us to be open, honest and personal with our supporters. Everyone who works for this charity plays a significant role – without them we wouldn’t exist. If supporters want to speak to the CEO, they can. If they want to speak to the Research team, they can. If they want to share their story, there will always be someone to listen.

Scientists across the world are ready to conquer cancer. To help start more cancer cures and save lives, we are looking for a Research Funding Officer to join our Research team. Is that you?

Please supply a covering letter with your CV, this will be key to the success of your application.
