Centre Manager – Quantum Engineering Technology Labs

University of Bristol - School of Physics

Work Hours 35.0 Hours per Week

We are looking to appoint a Centre Manager to provide operational leadership and management for the University of Bristol's, multi-disciplinary, Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QETLabs). The role involves working closely with academics and researchers and leading a team of professional support staff to deliver a programme of activities aimed at developing world-changing quantum technologies and training the industry leaders of the future.

QETLabs is a globally renowned centre for research, development and entrepreneurship in the emerging quantum technology industry and is a node for collaboration with industrial and academic world leaders, and the EPSRC funded UK Quantum Technology Hub Network. QETLabs has a total funding portfolio in excess of £45M, with approximately 100 staff and students; it spans research groups across both the Faculties of Science and Engineering to deliver a radically new generation of concepts and devices that exploit quantum physics to transform our lives, society and economy. Encompassing the Centre for Quantum Photonics, the Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training and the Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre, QETLabs brings together world-leading academics and partners to deliver skills training, research and technology development and commercial enterprise.

This position offers an exceptional career opportunity for the right person to play a vital role in the continued development of a strategically important research, training and enterprise centre at the University of Bristol. Preferably educated to postgraduate degree level (ideally in a science or engineering discipline) or with equivalent research management experience, you will have a problem solving mind-set - be able to look objectively at a situation or issue and provide workable solutions. You will be a collaborative leader – someone who can motivate others and work through issues for mutual benefit and be good at influencing people at all levels of seniority. You will be able to work with a high level of detail when needed but always with an eye on the bigger picture. You will be innovative and practical and able to communicate potentially complex concepts or issues in a clear and succinct way. This is a challenging and exciting role which requires resilience, creativity and the ability to think quickly whilst making sensible and effective decisions.

Based in the Nanoscience and Quantum Information Building, within the School of Physics, the post is offered full-time with open ended funding. Please note that the successful candidate must be able to start within 3 months of the interview date.

For more information, please direct informal enquiries to Jessica Inglis, School Manager jessica.inglis@bristol.ac.uk

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture.  We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
