Jonathan Rans

Strategic Research Executive

The ultimate aim of my role is to support the growth and diversification of the University of Edinburgh's research portfolio. I analyse the wide influencers and drivers of research funding, enabling  evidence-based identification of new opportunities. Taking a project-based approach and working in conjunction with the rest of the Strategic Research Development team, I develop strategies and support which enable the exploitation of these new opportunities.
