About the team/job
As part of the Course and Conference Office, based at EMBL Heidelberg you will fulfil EMBL’s mission to provide exemplary training for the life sciences, making the laboratory the leading meeting place for biologists in Europe. Join the team that delivers a world-class programme of international conferences, courses and events, primarily at the striking Advanced Training Centre (ATC). The ATC is EMBL’s purpose-built scientific conference and training venue, centred on a large auditorium, wet laboratories and computer-based training rooms and complete with social spaces designed to foster networking and collaboration. We offer an international working environment with superb benefits and facilities for staff.
Course and Conference Officers are responsible for the end-to-end production of their own assigned conferences, courses and events, working in collaboration with scientific organisers, external clients or partners. The current opening is for a rapid-learning and appropriately experienced events organiser ideally with the potential to start work in Heidelberg in April, training up to produce his/her share of EMBL’s events in late 2020 and beyond.
There will be an occasional requirement to work at evenings and weekends in support of the programme.
Your academic studies and your career to date in events coordination, conference production, courses or other appropriate projects will have prepared you to work on EMBLs busy programme. The CCO needs enthusiastic team players with impressive abilities to self-organise and prioritise so that they can support multiple event projects and tasks simultaneously. Strong administrative, coordination and customer service skills underpin your ability to communicate with and gain the confidence of our scientists, customers and fellow service providers at EMBL.
