Dr James Mawdesley

Research Development Officer


Having trained as a historian (I was previously Lecturer in Early Modern History at the University of Manchester), I am now the Research Development Officer for the Faculty of Health and Medicine here at Lancaster University.

Please feel free to contact me with any queries about research funding and the development of your research profile. I can help with the initial identification of possible funding sources and early idea development; the writing and review of draft proposals; responses to reviewer feedback; and in the event of an award, the initial set-up of the awarded project. I will be happy to help.

I also serve as the secretary of the Faculty Research Committee, and as a member of three divisional research committees in Health and Medicine.

I am also currently the Principal of Furness College, where I am responsible for overseeing the strategic direction of the College in line with wider University priorities.
