About the Role

The Ethics and Well-Being Hub is one of five Hubs and Centres within the School of Psychological Sciences which seeks to develop and integrate expertise across multiple domains to better understand how people make ethical decisions, how these decisions are shaped by processes within and around them, and how both of these factors impact on their quality of life and mental health.

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding individual to assist with the organisation and operations of the Ethics and Well-being Hub. This will include organising regular presentations and administrative meetings, coordinating visits by (inter)national guests, grant assistance, managing the Hub’s budget, online and media presence, and contributions to the School’s overall research and engagement strategy. The Ethics and Well-being Hub Coordinator will also work as project manager / assistant for both SEMA3, and the EMOTE database.

In a typical week at work, you may:

  • Work closely with Hub members to assist the development and implementation of a strategic vision for the Hub and be a face of leadership for students and staff alike.
  • Support Hub activities, including chairing, minuting and actioning items from the regular Hub administration planning meetings.
  • Assist with organising the research infrastructure and laboratories of the Hub.
  • Manage platform users, troubleshooting requests, sign-up requests, and financial contributions.

About You

You are a fantastic communicator, with a talent for presenting written information clearly. Your ability to work collaboratively and effectively in a team-based environment will be essential for effective research collaboration and engagement, and you will thrive in a role where you can utilise your exceptional organisational skills to prioritise workloads and meet deadlines.

Ideally, you will further have:

  • Tertiary qualification and/or equivalent mix of education and relevant experience in the tertiary education sector.
  • Previous experience in an administrative and/or senior research assistant role.
