The MRI was established with a Director, Prof. Bill Gillin, who reports directly to the Vice-Principal for Science and Engineering. To help focus the Institute’s strategic aims it has appointed an external Advisory Board to provide oversight and advice. The MRI has a Management Committee which is responsible for PhD recruitment and training, staff appointments, management of the research themes and business engagement, acting through an Implementation Group. This is further encouraged by the integration of the College’s Business Development Unit into the MRI Senior Management Team. Each research theme has an academic leader to direct the programme and provide input to the Senior Management Team. The research theme leaders oversee research mentoring of ECRs, Research Fellows and PDRAs, while the progression of PGRs is delegated to its Director of Graduate Studies. The Institute employs a Research Administrator, Karen Wilkinson, who provides support for grant applications and grant management.
Senior Management Team
The team meets monthly to discuss the development and strategic issues.
