University of Nottingham - Engineering

An experienced and dynamic project manager is sought to coordinate an exciting new EPSRC funded Programme Grant looking to investigate Next Generation Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) comprising 9 Post Docs and 20 PhD students, involving three partner universitiies (Nottingham, Birmingham, Warwick) and eight industrial partners. Duties will include overall Programme coordination, facilitating sandpits and ideas competitions, reporting to various Boards (including sponsors), engaging with partners and beneficiaries, managing an international exchange programme and monitoring and managing project finances.
