Project Manager

Posted: 2nd February 2021

Fixed Term for up to 24 months - Part Time - 50% FTE

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Professor Jirotka’s team in the newly established Responsible Technology Institute (RTI). The RTI is an international centre of excellence on responsible technology. It serves to establish a creative and robust community to discuss and develop culturally nuanced approaches to responsibility and responsible innovation (RI). It takes an international focus on the societal challenges presented by new and emergent technologies, unpacks complexities around understandings of responsibility and different regulatory environments, and addresses gaps that exist in industry-related approaches to responsible technology.

You will manage the programme of work conducted within the RTI, and will promote and build its global reputation. Your main duties will fall into three categories:

• Project management, including helping to develop the strategic direction of the Institute and support its ongoing funding efforts
• Project communication, to include writing, editing and proofreading a variety of communications and reports, managing the website and other communications
• Event management, such as organising meetings, workshops and conferences with key stakeholders.

The ideal candidate will have excellent organisational and project management skills, and familiarity with the University research sector and its funding landscape. Applicants should have a university degree in a relevant topic and be able to work independently, with the ability to create reports, budgets and other materials, on time and to a high standard.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Friday 19 February 2021. Interviews are expected to be held in the following two weeks.
