The Mohn Centre for Children’s Health & Wellbeing, led by Professor Mireille Toledano, is seeking a Scientific Manager with an interest in children’s health and scientific research to provide overarching research support to the Centre.
The Mohn Centre has recently been established following a £25M gift from Marit Mohn to establish a world-leading centre for children’s health and wellbeing in the School of Public Health. The mission of the Mohn Centre for Children’s Health & Wellbeing is to be an international resource and centre of excellence for research and capacity building in the field of children’s mental and physical health in urban environments, and the translation of this knowledge to inform national and international policies to improve life-long health.

You will play a critical role in helping the Centre Director and researchers deliver the Centre mission and research programme. In particular, you will lead on identifying and working to attract funding for the Centre and managing the Centre’s Communications Strategy. You will also be expected to have an operational understanding of the Centre’s research goals, and the corresponding work streams. You will work closely with the Centre Director to be responsible for managing and coordinating activities, ensuring that they are carried out smoothly with milestones achieved and reported on. The role requires you to handle a varied workload, having excellent attention to detail, and an understanding of scientific research collaborations.
You should hold a Masters or Doctoral degree in a scientific discipline preferably related to the aims of the Mohn Centre or have equivalent experience. It is essential to this role to have experience of identifying funding opportunities for research, and experience of drafting funding applications and preparing budgets for funding applications.
This role is offered on a full time, fixed term basis for 3 years in the first instance, normally based on the St Mary’s Campus, however you will be working from home in the time being (due to COVID-19).
