We are seeking to hire a Project Officer to assist in the management and co-ordination of two separate large-scale research projects. The first is a comparative, multi-site research project on the topic of honour and social interactions (“HONORLOGIC”), led by Professor Ayse K. Uskul. The second aims to understand how humans understand and remember everyday situations (“EVENTS”), led by Professor Chris Bird. Both projects are funded by 5-year European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grants. The post will be split with approximately two thirds of the time spent on HONORLOGIC and one third on EVENTS.
The successful candidate will work with both Principal Investigators and their teams of post-and pre-doctoral researchers within the School of Psychology, University of Sussex, UK. The HONORLOGIC project additionally involves a large international team and their local research assistants in different countries.
The successful candidate will be responsible for overseeing the logistical and financial aspects of the projects. Tasks include regular communication with team members on administrative matters, organizing travel to project meetings and conferences, arranging contracts of and payments to research assistants to be hired in different locations, overseeing the budget and staff hiring, helping prepare the grant reports and visuals (e.g., slides, charts) for the project, and managing the project’s webpage and the project’s social media accounts. Other duties, commensurate with the grading of the post, may also be assigned from time to time.
Please contact Prof Ayse K. Uskul at email@example.com and/or Prof Chris Bird firstname.lastname@example.org for informal enquiries.
