BRC Neuroscience Theme Manager

Imperial College London - Medicine, Brain Sciences

Campus: Hammersmith

The Department of Medicine is looking to appoint an experienced Project Manager to assist the Theme Lead in strategic coordination of the broad range of projects and initiatives conducted by the BRC Neurosciences Theme, which includes clinical and non-clinical investigators in the Division of Brain Sciences. The objective is to help ensure the best delivery of the diverse range of projects, to monitor research outputs and impact and to help in preparations for a strong Theme submission for the quinquennial review of the BRC. An important aspect of the role will be managing the Theme’s newly established PET-MRI facility located within a collaborating commercial unit on the site (Imanova Clinical Imaging Centre).

The post-holder will be accountable to the BRC Neuroscience Theme Lead and will support him, and the Divisional Manager for Brain Sciences, in management of the BRC project portfolio by providing up to date management information as requested. The post holder will work closely with PIs and researchers, College administrative staff, and external partners to support the smooth progress of applications for funding from conception through to study setup and completion. This will involve providing support with costing and internal review of imaging studies using the new PET-MR at Imanova, facilitating preparation and sign off of contractual and governance paperwork, and liaising with Facility Managers regarding scheduling to ensure efficient use of scanning time. In addition, the post-holder will coordinate meetings and events related to the BRC Neuroscience Theme, and support the Divisional Manager with financial administration of the BRC Neuroscience Theme.

Exceptional communication skills and the ability to build a rapport quickly with a diverse range of stakeholders will be crucial to success in this role. Strong organisation skills and the ability to work to deadlines is also essential. Experience of developing administrative systems and processes would be advantageous. Knowledge of research projects, grant funding, and of imaging studies is desirable but not essential to the post. Training can be provided. This post will offer the post-holder considerable scope for autonomy, growing responsibility and enhancement of skills.
