Research Officer

The Francis Crick Institute

Contract: Full –time, fixed-term (18-months with the potential to lead to a permanent role)

The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.

An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.

The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.

This role is an exciting opportunity to be a part of this pioneering biomedical research institute, dedicated to innovation and science. We are looking for a highly organised, proactive and adaptable Research Officer to join our team. The successful candidate will be involved in a wide range of projects that support the implementation of the Crick’s strategy Discovery Without Boundaries. To be able to take on this position, you will need to be a highly motivated self-starter with a proven ability to take on a wide range of projects and tasks, underpinned by a good understanding of biomedical research in the UK and worldwide.

This research officer is a new role that has been created to support the operation of the Crick’s science management team. This team includes the Director, Director of Research, Director of Clinical Research, Director of Science Operations, and four Associate Research Directors, as well as three senior support roles — the Laboratory Resourcing and Review Manager (reporting to the Director of Research), the Science Strategy Manager and the Group Leader Recruitment Manager (both reporting to the Crick Director). The post-holder will work with individuals in these roles to support the implementation of the institute’s scientific strategy through the delivery of a range of functions. These may include supporting science programme reviews, laboratory resource allocation, selection and management of university attachment groups, development of science-related operational policies, liaison with funding organisations, and group leader recruitment, as well as other projects and activities that may arise from time-to-time.

The role may suit a postdoc or recent PhD graduate wanting to transition to a career in research administration and management.

The closing date for applications is 29th October at 23:30 pm.
