The Department of Architecture is seeking two Research Project Co-ordinators to assist in co-ordinating a large research grant which is exploring community consultation in planning in rural areas. The co-ordinators will be supporting a paid team of local community 'mappers' (including arts practitioners) to help children and young people gather data about the island on maps.
These are full-time, fixed-term roles with initial funding for 18 months. It is funded by a grant held in the University of Cambridge, but the post-holders are expected to be based in Wales within partner institutions.
Working within the partner institutions, the Research Project Co-ordinators will be supported by the Research Project and Communications Manager, based in Cambridge, and all will work together to help to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the project.
Although there is opportunity for both role-holders to be pro-actively involved in all aspects of the project, it is expected that one role-holder will lead locally on external project events and outreach work; preparing promotional materials and disseminating information using appropriate media, including social media. The other will lead on the local project management; preparing reports for stakeholders, managing local finance and HR as needed.
Both role-holders will liaise with a range of stakeholders, in both Welsh and English, including local communities as well as colleagues across institutions. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as a pro-active approach will ensure that the diverse workload is enjoyable and fulfilling.
Although the role is based in Wales, there may be opportunities to travel to Cambridge in the course of the project.
It is an exciting time to join the Department, and the wider research community within the School of Arts and Humanities and University as we head towards REF2028.
Examples of day-to-day work include 1:1 meetings, organizing the local advisory groups, organising the deployment of 'community mappers' in schools across the island, and providing progress reports and social media content for the Research Project and Communications Manager.
