Valerie West

Research Manager

I am the Research Manager and Facilitator within the Department of Psychiatry. I support researchers who are seeking funding to navigate the internal and external administrative processes around applying for grants and/or philanthropic funding. I facilitate departmental support for grant applications, liaising closely with applicants, the Finance Team, the Associate Head of Department for Research and the Head of Department to ensure any grant submissions are optimal.  If you are thinking about applying for research funding, either now or in the future, I'd love to hear from you and support you in that process!

I am a member of the Academic Careers Working Group in the department and actively promote the progression of academic careers within the University.

I am the secretary of the Oxford Neuroscience Strategy Committee.
