NQIT Senior Programme Manager

Application deadline
Department of Physics, Clarendon Laboratory, Parks Road, Oxford
Grade 8: £39,324 – £46,924 with a discretionary range to £51,260 p.a.

An exciting opportunity is available to coordinate the development and successful delivery of a flagship research project led by the University of Oxford. The Networked Quantum Information Technology (NQIT) Hub will build on the world’s most advanced quantum technologies to develop practical technologies in entirely new sectors. It is funded by the recent award of £38m to a consortium of nine universities and is supported by a number of commercial and governmental partners.

As part of EPSRC’s £270m National Quantum Technologies Programme, the Hub has an international profile and corresponding responsibilities to achieve the highest levels of success. Effective liaison with consortium members, partners and stakeholders is crucial to the Hub’s mission and thus an important part of this role, as is the building of relationships with external partners. More information can be found at: nqit.ox.ac.uk.

The post is offered as a permanent position, and also includes line-management responsibilities and coordination of the work of a small team of project managers.

Applicants should possess a degree and experience of project and financial management in a complex organisation and with external stakeholders. Previous experience in a university research environment would be an advantage. Candidates are expected to demonstrate the ability to liaise effectively with wide range of people within and beyond the University, including academic staff, industrial collaborators, funding agencies and all grades of administrative and support staff.

Please direct informal inquiries about the role to Dr Michele Warren (michele.warren@physics.ox.ac.uk).
