We are seeking applications for a Project Manager for a new multi-centre collaborative research program led by the University of Oxford in the neuroscience of Parkinson’s disease funded by a major award from the Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s (ASAP) Initiative ( https://parkinsonsroadmap.org/). ASAP has launched a coordinated research initiative to accelerate the pace of discovery and inform the path to a cure for Parkinson’s disease, through promoting open science, collaboration, research-enabling resources, and sharing of data amongst an international network of ASAP-funded teams. The post of Project Manager for the Oxford-led team presents an exciting opportunity for scientifically-trained personnel to gain experience in research administration, project management and team science, while keeping close to the cutting-edge of research in neuroscience. This post is to cover a period of maternity leave for the current post-holder.

The Project Manager (PM) will serve an important integrating role across a collaborating team of neuroscientists at the Universities of Oxford (UK), Boston (USA) and the Karolinska Institute (Sweden) alongside collaborators in Peking (China) and Stanford (USA). The PM will play a critical role in facilitating the collaboration. They will assist with day-to-day coordination of the team’s efforts, organising team meetings, and monitoring progress against goals. They will take the lead role in representing the team when liaising between the team and funder staff (ASAP and MJFF), to report on scientific progress and any potential barriers or resource needs. The PM will manage and curate the team’s contributions to the ASAP knowledge hub, and will facilitate the team’s interactions with the wider Hub. They will attend and help to co-ordinate meetings with the wider ASAP network and organize, chair and moderate team meetings with a view to keeping the team on track with achieving milestones. The PM will report to and closely assist the Co-ordinating Lead Principal Investigator, Professor Stephanie Cragg, and will be a member of the Cragg group.

The successful candidate for this exciting opportunity should have a PhD in a relevant area, advanced understanding of methods in neuroscience to investigate cells and circuits of the central nervous system, strong organizational skills and communication skills for interacting with team members and the ASAP executive and organising scientific team meetings, successful collaboration experience, and dedication to fostering an inclusive environment. Prior experience in field of neurodegeneration, and skills in data sets archiving and digital team platform communications is also desirable.

The post is available from 01/05/2023. The post is a fixed-term post funded by ASAP.

The post holder will be based at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, Sherrington Building, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PT.
