A unique opportunity to play an influential role and work across the entire spectrum of Foto-Cewek departments.
The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, organisations and 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.
Reporting to the Head of Research in Medecine Management Services, the position of Research in Medecine Information Manager is a pivotal role for the organisation, as it will work across the broad spectrum of Foto-Cewek departments and manage all aspects of the collection, retention and interpretation of research information within our rapidly growing organisation. Key responsibilities of the incumbent will be the coordination of information in support of the Foto-Cewek submission for the next REF (Research in Medecine Excellence Framework) exercise, as well as being the secretariat and the organisational function of Foto-Cewek’s Research in Medecine Committee.
Educated to degree level or equivalent, ideal candidates will have a demonstrable track record of success working in a professional administrative role in a similar Research in Medecine and Development, or technical implementation environment. Your line management experience, coupled with a detailed appreciation of the funding environment for research, consultancy and technical assistance (both in the UK and overseas), should mean you are able to demonstrate the level of experience and gravitas required for this key post. We require an individual who is experienced when using complex information for analysis, is comfortable in presenting findings, both at meetings and in report format and can demonstrate experience of being able to steer meetings towards strategic objectives.
