The National Mouse Genetics Network, funded by the Medical Research Council, is being established to accelerate our understanding of human disease and improve diagnosis and treatments. It will do this by driving integration of mouse and human/clinical genetics and pathology, and will involve a number of research clusters closely linked to the Mary Lyon Centre at Harwell. This role will support the recently appointed Network Director at the University of Glasgow based at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute and work closely with the Director of the Mary Lyon Centre.

An exciting and varied new position has arisen for a Senior Project Coordinator. Reporting to and co-located with the Network Director in Glasgow, the role will help support the establishment and management of this UK-wide network in mouse genetics.

As Senior Project Coordinator, you will support the director in developing the business case for the network ahead of its launch in April 2022 and take the lead on communications to the network community and partners in close liaison with the Network and Mary Lyon Centre Directors.

To be successful in this role you must possess well-honed skills in building effective relationships, as well as experience in managing complex projects with numerous stakeholders. Whilst a degree in a scientific discipline or a good understanding of developments in the biosciences, in particular mouse genetics, will be a real advantage in this role, it is not essential.

More importantly, you need to be a well-organised individual with experience of managing complex projects, have a collaborative mindset and an open communication style. You should also have demonstrable experience of using your initiative to problem solve complex issues and possess the ability to form strong and effective relationships within a scientific environment. You must be IT literate with a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office packages.

In return we offer an attractive salary, a Defined Contribution pension scheme with minimum 5% employee contributions and a generous annual leave allocation. Relocation will be offered for this role, where appropriate.
