This role is based in the RIBA Practice Department and is focused on the facilitation and dissemination of the RIBA's academic and technical research programmes and projects, and support of practice and research-related expert member groups. You will represent the RIBA at external meetings, and liaise with other professional institutions, universities and research organisations, promoting the RIBA’s reputation and influence in research and innovation in architecture and the built environment.
