Job Opportunity - Postdoc Research Staff Co-ordinator (Part Time)

last modified Mar 27, 2017 04:42 PM
The OPdA is looking to appoint an experienced co-coordinator to provide a core service supporting the Postdocs of Cambridge (PdOC) Society and the wider postdoc community of 4,000.

The post holder also will maintain collaboration between the University and OPdA with primary support for the PdOC Society but also support for the Departmental Postdoc Committee Chairs Network (DPCCN) and the Entrepreneurial Postdocs of Cambridge Society (EPoC).

As part of the support of the PdOC Society and also to maintain Society independence from the University, there will be additional informal reporting to the Head of the Accommodation Service, who is the PdOC Senior Treasurer.

The role initially will be part time (67%) with the intention of expanding it to 80% from August 2017, although this depends on financial decisions in the University's current planning round. [This upgrade in hours is not guaranteed but applicants should be prepared to increase hours in the event that the funding request is successful.]

The role requires strong attention to detail, outstanding organisational skills and excellent communication skills. Good numerical skills and an understanding of budgets are also essential.

Previous administration experience is required and experience of working in an academic environment would be advantageous. Some evening hours will be required to support committee meetings.

Please see here for more details about the role and how to apply.

The closing date for applications is Monday 24 April 2017 and interviews will be held on Wednesday 3 May 2017. If you have any queries about this vacancy or the application process please contact karina.prasad@admin.cam.ac.uk
