About the team/job
We are Europe’s flagship research laboratory for the life sciences – an intergovernmental organisation performing scientific research in disciplines including molecular biology, physics, chemistry and computer science. We are an international, innovative and interdisciplinary laboratory with more than 1700 employees from many nations, operating across six sites, in Heidelberg (HQ), Barcelona, Hinxton near Cambridge, Hamburg, Grenoble and Rome. EMBL offers and maintains a vibrant, cooperative, team-oriented and open working atmosphere.
Training the next generation of scientists is a core mission of the EMBL. EICAT’s Internal Scientific Training team coordinates EMBL’s predoctoral and postdoctoral programmes, which provide world-class training and career development support for our fellow community. The EMBL International PhD programme (EIPP) is widely recognized as one of EMBL’s flagship programmes and hosts ca. 220 PhD students across the six sites at any given time.
The EIPP Programme Administrator will join the graduate office at EMBL Heidelberg and will share all duties involved in the day-to-day operation of the EMBL International PhD programme (see below). You will act as a first point of reference for PhD students and will constantly communicate with the Dean of Graduate Studies. You will also closely interact with other colleagues in the Internal Training Team, such as the Postdoc Programme Manager and the Career Advisors.
Your main responsibilities will include:
As our ideal candidate, you will be expected to work with a high degree of autonomy and to pro-actively handle all of your tasks. You will also enjoy contributing to dedicated projects in line with the future strategic development of the PhD programme.
As the successful candidate you are expected to have a higher-level university degree in the area of life sciences, human resources or related fields. You should have also previously demonstrated effective organizational skills and the ability to work in an independent and proactive manner.
Excellent interpersonal skills are essential for this position, as is the ability to establish effective channels of communication with a large variety of stakeholders. The ability to pay attention to details and to ensure that matters are dealt with confidentially, efficiently and in a timely manner is also necessary. The position requires the highest degree of service orientation and a demonstrated ability to work in an international team.
