The Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science (LCDS) is a multi-departmental research centre located at the Department of Sociology at the University of Oxford (www.demographicscience.ox.ac.uk), funded by the Leverhulme Trust and Nuffield College. Launched in October 2019 for an initial period of 10 years, the Centre is highly interdisciplinary, with the aim to disrupt and realign conventional thinking and infuse science into demography.

The Research Grants Officer will play a central role in coordinating and developing research activities in the thriving new interdisciplinary centre. The focus of the role is on delivering the operational activities of the LCDS, helping to develop and sustain new research programmes, funding streams and endowments. You will work under the direction of LCDS Director Professor Mills and the LCDS Centre Manager but will be required to work independently and relate well to staff at all levels. The postholder will be responsible for processing Centre grant applications and providing strategic feedback to applicants, as well as assisting with post-award management.

You must be educated to degree level or have equivalent experience, have worked in research administration or research programme management and have knowledge of the research funding environment, as well as demonstrate excellent interpersonal and communication skills. You will also have strong financial management skills with experience of budget administration, have excellent organisational skills and be able to effectively juggle a mixed portfolio of activity whilst meeting deadlines, as well as maintain a proactive and adaptive attitude. Relevant experience in a senior research role and knowledge of contracts in a research environment is also welcome.

The Leverhulme Centre and Department of Sociology are committed to equality and valuing diversity and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

The post is full-time for 3 years in the first instance, with possible extension depending on the future requirements of the Centre.
