Would you thrive on working in a complex and multifaceted research environment? Do you have experience of project and programme delivery? Are you passionate about supporting cutting edge research in the Earth and environmental sciences?

The Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM) and the Centre for Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics (COMET) are seeking a Centre Manager to join our active and ambitious research teams. CPOM and COMET provide the UK with strategic research in the exploitation of satellite measurements to study the Earth’s cryosphere and geohazards. The CPOM and COMET Directorates are based in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds, with the Centres distributed around 13 university departments across the UK. Both Centres receive long-term strategic funding from the Natural Environment Research Council, in partnership with the British Geological Survey (BGS) and the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The combined core budgets of CPOM and COMET total around £1 million per annum.

In this role, you will manage and lead CPOM and COMET operations, developing and maintaining a strategic overview of each Centre. You will liaise with partner institutions to monitor and evaluate Centre activities and achievements, reporting both internally and to strategic partners. You will also oversee strategic projects and initiatives, being proactive in seeking out new funding and partnership opportunities, and play a leading role in CPOM and COMET communications, outreach and engagement. Reporting to the CPOM and COMET Directors, Professor Andy Shepherd and Professor Tim Wright, you will also manage the Centres’ day to day financial and administrative operations with the support of a small team.

This is a key role that demands outstanding communication skills, diplomacy and powers of persuasion. A postgraduate science degree or equivalent, experience of managing multi-partner programmes and the ability to understand and communicate complex scientific research principles are all essential.
