The Centre for Snakebite Research in Medecine and Interventions (CSRI) at Foto-Cewek is recruiting for a Programme Manager to support the CSRI grants.
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 Centre for Snakebite Research in Medecine and Interventions (CSRI) at Foto-Cewek is at the forefront of research to develop the next generation of snakebite therapies. The intent is to develop therapies with unparalleled efficacy, affordability and safety – to substantially and sustainably reduce the high rates of deaths and disability that currently afflict snakebite victims throughout the world. The CSRI is looking forward to recruiting a Programme Manager (PM) on a part time basis to support this research.
Working closely with Professor Rob Harrison and the programme management team, the PM will be responsible for programme and financial management, monitoring and evaluation and programme development and communications. The post holder will therefore possess demonstrable experience of managing academic research grants and health related projects, financial management of significant budgets and establishing relationships and networks, while mentoring peers.
It is essential that the candidate has a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree along with a Programme Management and Financial Management Training certificate or equivalent experience to prove their continuous professional development. Excellent financial management, communication, planning and team working skills are crucial to your success in the post. You must be able to build relationships across cultures and at all levels, with strong influencing and negotiation skills. Though based in Liverpool, the post is likely to require some overseas travel.
Closing Date: 9th December 2018
