We have a vacancy for a Project Coordinator to be responsible for the financial and administrative coordination of the Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit (MITU) and the ‘Population Effects of Antiretroviral Therapy to reduce HIV Transmission’ (PopART) study.

MITU, in Tanzania, is a centre of excellence in clinical trials of HIV and other infections.

The PopART study measures the impact of a universal HIV test-and-treat intervention on population-level HIV incidence in Zambia and South Africa.

The workload will be demanding, requiring a constant shift in priorities.  The Project Coordinator will be responsible for providing proactive administrative coordination and financial management of the research programme.  This will include drafting, monitoring and reporting expenditure on project budgets; assisting with the coordination of grant applications; arranging conference calls, meetings, and travel; and providing administrative and logistical support to the research team in London and overseas.  S/he must have strong administrative, financial and organisational skills and an ability to assess priorities in order to manage workload and deadlines effectively.

The post is available full-time commencing from mid-September. The post will be available as a fixed-term contract and is funded until 30 November 2018 in the first instance, although the funding is long term in nature and there is the strong possibility of extension. The salary will be on the LSHTM Professional Support Pathway Grade 5 scale, in the range £33,006 to £37,889 per annum (inclusive of London Weighting). The post will be subject to the LSHTM terms and conditions of service.  Annual leave entitlement is 30 working days per year, pro rata for part time staff.
