FTE/Hours: Full Time
Ref: R2774

With £10m of funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, and over £20m pledged by research and industry partners, the EPSRC Future Metrology Hub is a major new UK investment in manufacturing research and development.

Led by the University of Huddersfield, the Hub will be based in the prestigious Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT), with supporting research teams at the Universities of Sheffield, Loughborough and Bath, and a consortium including 29 industry partners and five of the UK’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult Centres.

Metrology, the science of measurement, underpins all manufacturing, and the Hub’s vision is to create ground-breaking embedded metrology and universal metrology informatics to be applied throughout manufacturing value-chains. Improvements in the speed, accuracy and cost of measurement, combined with a more integrated approach to design, production, verification and control will reduce cost, improve quality and increase productivity in UK manufacturing.

The purpose of this role is to provide project management and operational support to CPT’s academic/research team and, in particular, to ensure successful delivery of all operational aspects of this prestigious project.

You will have a first degree in a relevant science/engineering discipline and a relevant postgraduate qualification along with experience of business development, customer liaison, partnership building and project management/delivery.

You will also need an understanding of the Higher Education sector and its products and services, with a particular focus on research and innovation, plus an awareness of current trends in manufacturing science, technology and business management. The ability to communicate and influence effectively to a wide range of audiences and the ability to build good working relationships at all levels both within and outside of the University are essential requirements for this role.

This is an open-ended appointment and is dependent upon the availability of specific funding in this School. In the event of there being no further funding available to support this post you will receive appropriate notification of the termination of your employment in accordance with contractual provisions.
