The Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health (CTLGH), a collaborative partnership of the University of Edinburgh (acting through the Roslin Institute), Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), wishes to strengthen its funded research programmes by recruiting a research co-ordinator. The position of Research Co-ordinator will be made at UoE Grade 7.
The post holder will work with the Director and the broader centre science and management leadership to maintain linkages with current funders and develop channels of communication with potential funders; provide a first point-of-contact to research staff for funding queries; work with the relevant teams at the three founding institutions (University of Edinburgh, SRUC and ILRI); provide technical and administrative support in the development of applications for research funding. The post holder will drive and support CTLGH research and development objectives ensuring that they contribute to strategic priorities of the main funders and investors, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, DfID and BBSRC.
This post offers an excellent opportunity to join a vibrant team of scientists and managers with a common interest in enhancing productivity, adaptability, and sustainability of poultry in tropical production systems through genetic improvement. It also offers an excellent opportunity to contribute to a global livestock development research initiative which is linked to relevant partnerships focused on the development of genomic tools to improve the productivity of tropical livestock and increase climatic resilience, adaptation, and mitigation for the benefit of smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
