We currently have two live recruitment opportunities. For further information, please follow the links below.
The closing date for both positions is midnight on 25th August 2020.
The Innovation Manager will lead NEPIC’s activities in the bioprocessing area. Key activities will include mapping the current landscape, identifying and promoting opportunities, supporting innovation, attracting inward investment and sharing best practice.
The Innovation Manager will work with industry, academia, local and national government and other key stakeholders to promote biotechnology and the development of a roadmap for NEPIC’s activities in this area.
Applications are invited for a research assistant in supply chain management with a particular emphasis on mapping and competence profiling of the plastics recycling supply chain.
The project, funded by the ESRC’s Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) via Durham University and North East of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC), aims to conduct a thorough analysis of the organisations across the plastics recycling supply chain of the North East using research developed by the Business School’s academics.
To do so, the successful candidate, who will be guided by the Durham team and NEPIC, will identify the key companies and how they are connected with each other, e.g. through the products and services they buy from each other.
The resulting supply chain map will then be used to guide an interview process with the member organisations of NEPIC to identify their competences and gaps. This competence analysis will be used by NEPIC and research team to identify the opportunities for supply chain integration and subsequently use for the development of a strategy of cooperation which will strengthen the footprint of the region.
