  • Work with us to build a world-leading Doctoral College delivering outstanding student experience 

The University of Southampton Doctoral College supports the next generation of academic, industrial and societal leaders by recruiting, training and providing development opportunities to  PhD students, also known as doctoral researchers or Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs).  In this varied role you’ll work as part of the Doctoral College management team to deliver outstanding student experience.  

Leading a team delivering  all aspects of the PGR student lifecycle from to graduation, you’ll use your continuous improvement skills to ensure processes are as streamlined and effective as possible and your management skills to support, train and develop staff to meet shared goals in delivery of the University strategy. You will have a high level of organisational skill and the ability to manage multiple tasks to deadlines and be comfortable with managing change.  Additionally, you will be positive and proactive about supporting staff to work collegially and achieve their full potential.  You will use your abilities and skills to quickly become an expert in all aspects of Postgraduate Research administration and environment. Above all, you will have a passion for maximising the student experience.

You will work with professional service teams and academics across the University and in the process gain a wide understanding of how different service providers operate and the support they provide.

We are active in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity believing we can only meet our objectives if we are reflective of society.
