The Role and Department

The post holder will be responsible for technical and managerial support across several instrumentation projects including MOSAIC and HARMONI, two first generation instruments for the upcoming 39m diameter Extremely Large Telescope, working closely with both the internal and external stakeholders. They will be responsible for meeting project reporting requirements, developing and maintaining project schedules and budgets, and coordinating the resources of the project team to ensure the timely delivery of projects. They will also be responsible for coordinating the development and delivery of project documentation as required for project meetings and milestone events. The post holder may work across several projects simultaneously and will report to the project Principal Investigator for each one.
