Research Administration Manager

University of Southampton - Cancer Sciences

Location: Southampton
Salary: £32,348 to £39,745 Per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 9th December 2022
Closes: 5th January 2023
Job Ref: 2010022CM-R
 

Applications are invited for the position of Research Administration Manager.

The position will be located in the Cancer Immunology Center at Southampton General Hospital. The Center is a newly constructed building dedicated to research which was the result of a major fundraising campaign. The Center draws on a 40-year history of pioneering immunology and cancer research at Southampton. The Center is the first dedicated center for cancer immunology in the UK bringing together the entire research pipeline under one roof: from pioneering scientific discovery to applied research and preclinical modeling and, crucially, first-in-human clinical trials and beyond. The Center houses world-class research facilities, which include not only state-of-the-art scientific laboratories, but also a clinical trials unit. 

The position is associated with the laboratory of Professors E. S. Ward, FRS, and R. Ober who have relocated their research group from the United States to Southampton. Their interdisciplinary research program is dedicated to the development of new antibody-based therapies which in the past have led to several new treatments. The group also develops advanced microscopy techniques for the evaluation of new therapies in cellular environments. Their research is supported by major grants from the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK and support from collaborating biopharmaceutical companies. 

The post-holder will be highly motivated and enthusiastic about the challenges of supporting a dynamic, interdisciplinary group of researchers with management and support roles. These involve the independent management and execution of interactions with stakeholders both inside and outside the university, such as granting agencies. Managing the organizational aspects of the research group will be central to the position, which will include the overall administration of the research group, budgetary management, event organization, diary and travel management, pre- and post-grant administration, human resources management and interaction with other administrative departments in the university, space allocation and the preparation of reports.

This position is an exciting opportunity for a candidate with a scientific background who is looking to acquire the necessary administrative skills required to assist with the running of an active scientific group.  Alternatively, it would also be of interest to a candidate with administrative background who would enjoy working in a dynamic research environment.  

Although direct experience in the role described in the job description is not a prerequisite, administrative or scientific experience is highly desirable.

Applicants are expected to have relevant academic qualifications and work experience, and  will also have good computer skills, the ability to plan and organize their own workload, show initiative, work well under pressure and communicate effectively and professionally with a range of stakeholders within the organization and outside.

Informal inquiries should be directed to Professor E. Sally Ward, E.S.Ward@soton.ac.uk or Professor Raimund J. Ober, R.Ober@soton.ac.uk

You should submit your completed online application form at https://jobs.soton.ac.uk. The application deadline will be midnight on the closing date stated above. If you need any assistance, please contact Anjali Mavi (Recruitment Team) on +44 (0) 23 8059 2750, or email recruitment@soton.ac.uk. Please quote reference 2010022CM on all correspondence.
