We are looking for an ambitious Project Manager to oversee the day-to-day running of the Oxford Applied and Theoretical Machine Learning (OATML) research group at the Computer Science department, University of Oxford. OATML is an energetic world-leading research group in Machine Learning, led by Yarin Gal, Associate Professor of Machine Learning. It has 25 researchers and at any given time, it has 25+ concurrent projects across domains such as medical, autonomous driving, astronomy, and stats. The group has contributed substantially to the field of Machine Learning, developing AI tools that can inform their users when the tools are “guessing at random” and not to be trusted. These tools have been deployed widely in industry and academia, with the tools used in medical applications, robotics, computer vision, astronomy, climate, in the sciences, and by NASA.

This post is an exciting opportunity for someone who is keen to work in a supporting role for a world-leading research group, and who would be motivated to help find solutions so the group runs efficiently and effectively. You will be responsible for the effective administration of the group; tasks include team, portfolio, and stakeholder management and coordination, with portfolio composed of many projects (> £3m), and stakeholders including Google, Apple, Facebook, GSK, Toyota, JPMorgan, and Intel, among others. The role will offer great opportunities for career development, as a step to transition into a leadership position within the group. You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team of researchers (post-doc scientists and DPhil students), coming from diverse backgrounds including Computer Science, Maths & Stats, Engineering, Physics, and medical professionals, with most students coming from industry.

Reporting to the Prof Gal, the post holder will ensure the smooth and efficient day-to-day operations of the group, taking responsibility for specific tasks and projects including, but not limited to human resources, finance, research and health and safety activities. The successful candidate will be a highly organised and motivated professional with excellent project management skills. They will possess exceptional prioritisation and communication skills with the ability to use own initiative to identify, prioritise, and manage complex tasks. Previous experience of administration and project coordination, and a demonstrable ability to confidently and effectively interact with a wide range of staff and partners is essential. The successful candidate will be computer literate for a wide range of office technologies. Previous experience of administration in a university context would be highly desirable.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 31st January 2022. Interviews are expected to be held in February.
