The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Chemical Technologies (SCT) is an EPSRC-funded training centre which currently hosts over 65 PhD students, involves over 90 academic staff across six departments of the University and works with over 20 industrial and international partners. 

We are seeking a part-time (18.25 hours per week, 0.5 FTE) Centre Coordinator to work in a job-share arrangement with the current post holder. You will take responsibility for the project co-ordination, recruitment, event organisation and the continuing development of the CDT, providing dedicated support to the Management Team and providing broad administrative support for the Centre’s activities.

You will work closely with the Centre Manager, its Directors and staff within the Doctoral College to provide operational knowledge and expertise to deliver a high quality standard of support, ensuring that services are efficient, effective and adaptable to changing circumstances.

This is a busy and varied role involving daily communication with academic staff and students, and you will need to have excellent organisational skills, to demonstrate good use of initiative, and to have the ability to multi-task and prioritise. Although there will be individual areas of responsibility, a team-based approach is essential to ensure continued success of the Centre.

The successful candidate will ideally have experience in a similar role with a high-level of proficiency with University IT systems (e.g. Agresso and SAMIS).

Informal enquiries may be addressed to the Centre Director, Prof. Matthew Davidson (M.G.Davidson@bath.ac.uk), Co-Director Prof. Tim Mays (T.J.Mays@bath.ac.uk) or Training Director, Dr Janet Scott (J.L.Scott@bath.ac.uk).
