We are seeking a full-time Administrator to join the Oxford e-Research Centre (OeRC), part of the Department of Engineering Science, based in central Oxford. The post is offered as full-time but applications are welcome from those who would like to work part-time (minimum 0.8FTE). The post is permanent.

You will report to the OeRC Director, Professor Wes Armour, and will have responsibility for delivering all OeRC’s operations and administrative functions, ensuring the successful day-to-day operational management of the centre. The OeRC Administrator leads the administration team of the OeRC, with overall responsibility for the complete range of administrative, financial and practical support services provided within the Centre, and to ensure the OeRC’s functioning within the Department of Engineering Science. You will work closely with the Director to ensure the ongoing financial stability and viability of the OeRC, planning and implementing the key strategic plans of the OeRC Director to deliver growth within identified areas of OeRC’s research portfolio, and strengthening of the centre’s academic team.

You will need to demonstrate well-developed problem solving and negotiating skills to identify solutions to a mixed variety of issues as they arise, protecting and ensuring both the ongoing financial viability of the centre and its academic excellence.
