Cancer research at Oxford University is spread across the City with departments in the central Science Area, the Old Road Campus, the John Radcliffe Hospital, the Churchill Hospital and Commercial Science Parks. This combined expertise contributes to our efforts to increase cancer cure rates. The Cancer Research-UK Oxford Centre is committed to ensuring that the breadth and depth of this expertise is harnessed through multi-disciplinary collaborative projects.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Training Project Manager to be responsible for delivering the Centre’s training programmes as defined by the Training Lead and Training Committee. The Centre’s Training Strategy is to educate and train the translational cancer researchers of tomorrow to maximise the impact of Oxford research in the global fight against cancer. As part of this role, you will develop proposals to enhance cancer teaching and training for pre-clinical and clinical trainees, working with the Medical School and Oxford University Clinical Academic Graduate School. You will also be required to establish the feasibility of running a Translational Oncology Masters programme which will include the building of a business plan and seeking appropriate approval from appropriate Departmental and University authorities.
You will need to have a PhD and/or Masters level education in relevant sciences, or equivalent experience. Demonstrable experience of the administrative processes associated with the establishment, management and running of an academic training programme is also essential, together with proven ability of having been responsible for managing links between projects, and contributions to them from a range of stakeholders.
