Grade 7: £31,604 - £38,833 p.a.

The Jenner Institute is seeking to appoint a Project Manager to support the Transmission-blocking Malaria Vaccine Group’s research programme at the Institute. If you have a strong scientific background, relevant experience and knowledge in project management, we encourage you to apply.

Your main responsibility will be supporting a variety of pre-clinical and clinical projects led by Professor Sumi Biswas. The programme has a diversity of funders, and strong links with industry and a variety of non-industrial/academic collaborators. This will be a key role within the group ensuring successful completion of our research programmes.

The Biswas Group at the Jenner Institute is focused on developing innovative TBV candidates against the sexual- and mosquito-stages of the malaria parasite, testing them in pre-clinical studies and aims to progress the most promising candidates to clinical trials. The group has a strong record of attracting external grant funding, an increasingly strong publication record, and has expanded significantly in recent years. We aim to foster scientific excellence within a friendly, open and free-thinking environment. This post will provide highly valuable project management support across a range of on-going and new programmes of work being undertaken by the Biswas group.

You will be educated to degree level (or equivalent), preferably in a biological science. An understanding of the University research grant management procedures and/or previous relevant experience within the higher education sector would be essential, as are excellent organisational, communication and team-working skills.

Depending on experience, this post may be offered at Grade 6 (£28,098 - £33,518 p.a.) with reduced duties.

You will also be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post.
