We are seeking a highly motivated project facilitator to join the Social, Economic and Geographical Sciences group (SEGS).

The successful candidate will support all aspects of PLAID project delivery - compiling an inventory of demonstration farms in the UK, overseeing inventory subcontractors in four other countries, organising project meetings and events, developing and up-dating data management and risk management plans, reporting to the consortium and the European Commission, and liaising with project participants across Europe to ensure that project deliverables are achieved in a timely manner.

The post holder will be expected to participate in inter- and trans-disciplinary teams both within Hutton and with H2020 partners across Europe in the delivery of planned research.
