The School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering is pleased to invite applications for a Project Officer to provide high level administration, support and guidance for a number of contracts held with the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR), the Chair of the Nuclear Graphite Research Group and members of the wider Research Group.

In 2001 the ONR set up an independent research team at the University of Manchester to offer independent advice and research to the UK’s nuclear regulator. The Nuclear Graphite Research Group supports the ONR to ensure that the UK’s reactors continue their safe operation through the initiation and development of novel characterisation, measurement, and modelling approaches. The group has also provided advice on the safe management of graphite waste that is being adopted both in the UK and internationally and next generation nuclear systems.

The Project Officer will be the primary point of contact for a range of high level stakeholders including industry partners, staff and students, provide high level financial and non-financial project administration and provide administrative support to the Chair of the Nuclear Research Graphite group and its members through diary management, travel organisation and meeting organisation.

This role provides an exciting opportunity to be part of a dynamic research group and is suitable for a candidate who has experience in supporting research projects and managing budgets, the ability to independently manage multiple conflicting priorities, build professional working relationships with a diverse range of individuals and communicate with such stakeholders effectively in both written and verbal communication.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
