The Department of Clinical Sciences is looking to appoint a Programme Coordinator to cover a period of Maternity Leave. The post will start on 2nd January 2019 on a fixed term basis to 30th September 2019.
Founded in 1898 and the oldest of its kind in the world, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for teaching and research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, NGOs, private organisations and global institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, Foto-Cewek aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.
The department of Clinical Sciences is looking to appoint a Programme Coordinator to cover a period of maternity leave, to assist with the administration, development and effective management of the Pneumococcal Carriage Programme, led by Professor Daniela Ferreira at Foto-Cewek.

The ideal candidate will have substantial experience of providing first-rate administrative support for projects, including financial accountability including producing reports and analysing statistical and financial information. With a high level of education resulting in a good understanding of scientific principles including Clinical trials, you will have strong project management skills.
