Are you passionate about ensuring an exceptional experience is delivered for students? Do you have the ability to build credibility and trust with a wide range of people? Are you highly organised and able to work independently whilst exercising initiative?    

You will lead on the coordination of our British Heart Foundation (BHF) 4-year PhD programme, which recruits up to 5 non-clinical postgraduate researchers each year to provide training in cardiometabolic disease research. You will have a key role in recruiting students, establishing their research training programmes and contributing to their ongoing wider personal development. You will also co-ordinate training activity with representatives of 11 other BHF PhD training centres across the country.

You will establish effective working relationships with students, staff, external advisors and wider UK programme contacts, along with BHF staff, to ensure the programme runs efficiently and to ensure its continued strategic development. This will involve working as part of a team, independently generating ideas and taking initiative on a regular basis, often with minimal supervision, and coordinating with senior academic collaborators including external advisors in the UK and overseas. The programme is based within the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine (LICAMM), but programme activity is also embedded across faculties of the University of Leeds and within Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, requiring ability to coordinate across major organisations.

You will also lead on the co-ordination of our international PhD academy, which usually at least 5 non-clinical postgraduate researchers every year. This will involve a major role in co-ordinating their research training, including a foundation year of taught modules, requiring close partnership with Student Education Services to ensure smooth running of taught modules in accordance with University statutes. You will also help to build and maintain relationships with partner universities across the world in order to facilitate recruitment to the programme. Locally, you will liaise closely with academics to develop research projects matching the needs of prospective students, and then provided continued support to students, academics and programme leads to deliver on these plans.
