I always agonise (mildly) over whether or not to include research grant administration posts on ScicommJobs as they're not always as easy to classify as scicomm – you are responsible for looking after the funding of research grants but not always getting an opportunity to talk about / communicate the science (I'd argue that you can create this opportunity though!).
