Senior Research Project Manager

University of Bristol - Faculty of Science

Location: Bristol
Salary: £46,047 to £51,805 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 17th November 2022
Closes: 11th December 2022
Job Ref: SUPP109220

The role

Working in partnership with the academic lead, the role is responsible for the successful management of the large IMMAGE scientific drilling project.  This internationally funded palaeoclimate research project is the world’s first Land-2-Sea drilling initiative. It involves offshore and onshore core recovery in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, Spain and Morocco, the coordination between two well-established, independent scientific drilling organisations, Integrated Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) and the International Continental Drilling Programme (ICDP) and a large international team of researchers. It is led from the School of Geographical Sciences in Bristol.

What will you be doing?

Because IMMAGE is the first land-2-sea drilling project, there is no template for how such projects should run. The post-holder will therefore take a leading role in the design and implementation of its governance structure as well as the planning, coordination and administration of the project including identifying risk and contingency plans, and the development of a data management plan  that is compatible with IODP, ICDP and other partners.

The role will develop and manage relationships with key stakeholders, seek to establish strategic partnerships that foster successful research collaborations. The role has primary responsibility for ensuring that all the necessary support is in place to maintain and expand a programme of research developed from the initial IMMAGE project in a complex environment through the identification and development of new funding opportunities from a range of academic, charitable and industrial sources and supporting the development of funding applications.

The post holder will also help develop and maintain IMMAGE’s communication strategy, write reports  and strategy documents and update on project progress on a regular basis including dissemination, promotion, web development and social media.

You should apply if

You have experience of the governance and management of large research projects and their budgets, preferably including multiple organisations and stakeholders and a sound understanding of the relevant professional, legal and regulatory requirements.

You have excellent organisation and project management skills; the ability to plan and prioritise a high and constantly changing workload and to meet multiple deadlines.

You have excellent written and oral communication skills. Proficiency in Spanish, French and/or Arabic would be an advantage.
