Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) Manager

Cardiff University - School of Physics & Astronomy

The Science Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Intensive Science Manager

Cardiff University leads an STFC funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Data Intensive Science with academic partners at the Universities of Bristol and Swansea. The specialist training in data intensive science provided by the CDT will allow students to address scientific questions across particle physics, gravitational physics and astronomy whilst also developing a training ground for the next generation of data scientists that are required by both industry and academia.  Strong links with local and national industrial partners will ensure students make a real contribution during their six-month industrial placements, and are well placed for future careers in data-intensive science, either in academia or industry. The first cohort of 15 students began their training in October 2017.  

Based at the School of Physics & Astronomy, the CDT Manager will support the CDT Director in the day-to-day running of the CDT, including interacting with University partner student offices; the recruitment, selection, registration and induction processes for PhD students; industrial placement selection processes; training delivery and cohort-building activities and budget monitoring. The CDT Manager will establish a small network of administrative contacts (Registry; Finance; Departmental) within the CDT partners, to facilitate operation across the consortium.

The CDT manager will be a member of the Management Board and will interact with the External Advisory Board.

Please submit with your completed application form your full CV and a statement of research interests and career goals (2 pages max) addressing the criteria in the person specifications.
