The postholder will be responsible for supporting Professor Dieter Wolke running a portfolio of funded research studies. These include a UKRI Research Frontiers grant (ERC-advanced grant reviewed), an IFS grant (Horizon Europe grant reviewed) and two intervention studies in the UK and a longitudinal study in Norway.
The studies are concerned of how early adversity in the form of pre- or neonatal influences (preterm birth, big baby, excessive crying, born into social adversity) and environmental influences across the life span (e.g. interventions; social influences) alter developmental trajectories, brain development or rate of ageing. All grants require complex organisation across many collaborators and data collections at various sites. New data collection activities are across the UK, in Germany, Norway and across Europe and secondary analysis across the Nordic countries. This requires a high degree of administrative organisational support, decision making, continuous monitoring and briefing.
Another important task is to support work in several working or advisory groups related to generating research impact or quality review activities. This work is related to translating research into impact for citizens and to change guidelines and policies. This also includes reviews of other organisations and standards to improve research translation.
You will be educated to degree level or hold equivalent experience. You will work with EU Programmes and help in the administration and organisation of activities of PROF Wolke, his team and across international research partners. This will include developing and planning a range of committee and research meeting, workshops and seminars. You will promote the projects internally and externally, through websites and social media. You will provide general administrative support to the project PI Professor Dieter Wolke and his team. You will be involved in time management and arrangements of travels for Prof. Wolke and meeting schedules and that his team meets deliverables and deadlines.
You will need to have excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to communicate effectively with staff within the University and at overseas institutions. You will have strong writing skills and financial administration experience. You will ideally have experience within a university or educational context and more generally in a busy and pressured environment where you will have demonstrated an ability to manage your workload whilst maintaining a meticulous attention to detail.
As a part-time post we are ideally looking for someone who can work 4 days per week for a total of 29.2 hours. However, part-time down to 25 hours per week would be considered.
In return we will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday per year plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, excellent learning and development opportunities. There will be opportunities for hybrid working around business needs. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Sliver Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognizes the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia.
