The Wellcome DTC offers PhD students a unique, interdisciplinary experience. It offers training in public health, economics, statistics and mathematical modelling over a four year period. In the first year of the programme, students take part in an intensive induction programme, study a range of taught modules and complete research attachments to help them develop their research topics, which they will complete during years two to four. Throughout the four-year programme, students participate in seminars and other events. They also have the opportunity to apply for transition funding to support their post-PhD careers. The seventh cohort of students will be arriving in September 2022.
This role will provide administrative support to postgraduate research students on the Wellcome DTC 4 Year PhD programme, and processes within the School. You will support the PGR student lifecycle, working closely with colleagues in the Teaching Support Unit (TSU) and the Postgraduate Research Committee in order to provide effective postgraduate research support.
You will have 5 GCSEs (grades A*-C) or equivalent experience. You will have proven communication skills, the ability to manage your workload and meet tight deadlines, and have the ability to work effectively both independently and as a team. Experience of working in a student-facing role is desirable.
You will also be a member of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health PGR Hub and will work in line with agreed Faculty processes.
