Wellcome Doctoral Training Centre Administrator

Job Description

The Wellcome DTC offers PhD students a unique, interdisciplinary experience. It offers training in public health, economics, statistics and mathematical modelling over a four year period. In the first year of the programme, students take part in an
intensive induction programme, study a range of taught modules and complete research attachments to help them develop their research topics, which they will complete during years two to four. Throughout the four-year programme, students
participate in seminars and other events.

They also have the opportunity to apply for transition funding to support their post-PhD careers. The seventh cohort of students will be arriving in September 2022.

This role will provide administrative support to postgraduate research students on the Wellcome DTC 4 Year PhD programme, and processes within the School. You will support the PGR student lifecycle, working closely with colleagues in the Teaching Support Unit (TSU) and the Postgraduate Research Committee in order to provide effective postgraduate research support.

You will have 5 GCSEs (grades A*-C) or equivalent experience. You will have proven communication skills, the ability to manage your workload and meet tight deadlines, and have the ability to work effectively both independently and as a team.
Experience of working in a student-facing role is desirable.

You will also be a member of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health PGR Hub and will work in line with agreed Faculty processes.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and
development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
