The University of Bristol has recently been awarded funding from UK Research and Innovation to host a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Interactive Artificial Intelligence (IAI). This CDT is a major investment from the UK Government, Industry and the University of Bristol to train the next generation of innovators in human-in-the-loop AI systems. The CDT will train 5 cohorts of (at least) 10 students in responsible, data-driven and knowledge-intensive AI. Students will benefit from a wide range of additional activities, including summer and winter schools, industrial placements, international visits, entrepreneurial training, and outreach and widening participation events.
The CDT Administrator will provide administrative support for postgraduate teaching and research and related activities of the CDT. S/he will support the Centre Director and Centre Administrator in the day-to-day management of the CDT, and in organising internal and external activities including Summer and Winter Schools, student induction events, open days, CDT partner conferences, and public engagement events. S/he will also have an important student-facing role, providing appropriate guidance and pastoral care to individual students and administering processes and procedures relating to student activities.
This is a unique opportunity to join an ambitious team who will push the boundary of innovation in research-led training. The role requires efficient organisational skills, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, drive, tact and an attention to detail as well as a good appreciation of the challenges of PhD level study. Prior involvement in projects with an advanced computing aspect would be an advantage.
The post is offered on a part-time contract (50%), open-ended position (with funding up to October 2027) and is available for an immediate start.
Informal enquiries can be made to the Centre Director by email to Peter.Flach@bristol.ac.uk.
We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
