We are seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual, with strong technical skills, an undergraduate (or higher) science degree, and an excellent standard of written and spoken English.
The post-holder will be the in-house owner of our student-facing technologies -- including our student recruitment system, virtual learning environment, and several bespoke e-learning websites. They will work with colleagues to maximise their use, and will join national user groups to represent the ICR's interests. At times, it will be necessary to develop a technical specification for external or internal developers, and the post-holder will coordinate in-house testing of new functionality.
The role is not purely technical, and the successful candidate must also be a skilled communicator. They will be a champion for the use of plain English, and will provide advice and assistance with branding and tone of voice in education-related documents. They will also lead on the development of in-house scientific e-learning content.
This is a varied role, and the successful candidate will lead initiatives that enhance the quality of the teaching that we deliver. Applicants should have a good undergraduate or higher science degree (ideally in the biological sciences), with some research experience (which may have been gained through a masters or undergraduate project). We are seeking someone who can provide examples of successfully managing and completing several complex projects in parallel. The post-holder will work with both scientific and corporate teams across The Institute of Cancer Research.
