Join our internationally recognised Tobacco Control Research Group at the University of Bath

We are seeking to appoint a Project Administrator who will have responsibility for providing administrative support for the set-up and development of the STOP Project, focusing on supporting the coordination of the project across the project partners. This role is based at the University of Bath. 

You will be required to develop strong working relationships with appropriate academic and professional staff from across the University and beyond, including engaging with staff at senior levels and external stakeholders. The role will also support a number of University level and external committees, which are responsible for deciding the strategy and overseeing operations of the Project. 

With the challenges and opportunities of establishing a new Project, it is essential that the appointee is proactive in solving problems, identifying additional service requirements or shortfalls, and independently using judgement and creativity to investigate and resolve any non-standard problems. 

The project

The Stop Tobacco Organisations & Products (STOP) project is an innovative $15m project funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, aimed at developing a tobacco industry watchdog to deliver policy change. It is a partnership between the Tobacco Control Research Group at the University of Bath, the Global Center for Good Governance in Tobacco Control, Thailand, the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, Paris, and Vital Strategies, New York

No previous work for or with the tobacco industry and organisations or individuals financially linked to the tobacco industry. To avoid potential conflicts of interests and to ensure compliance with Article 5.3 of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), you are therefore asked to declare any current or previous occupational activity with any tobacco company or those receiving financial contributions from the industry, whether gainful or not.

This position is initially fixed term until November 2021.
