Institute Administrator

Reference:  HY0159
Campus:  Hull and NHS Sites
Faculty/Area:  Hull York Medical School
Department:  Hull York Medical School
Salary:  £21,220 to £24,565 per annum
Post Type:  Full Time
Closing Date:  Monday 24 April 2017

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Institute Administrator to support the development of the Institute for Clinical & Applied Health Research (ICAHR) at the University of Hull.

The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) and the Faculty of Health Sciences have ambitious plans for research growth in biomedical, applied health and clinical research at the University of Hull.  This growth is supported and enabled by a £28m investment by the University of Hull in a new Health Campus development and the establishment of an Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research (ICAHR). The formation of the Institute is accompanied by a major investment in academic and clinical academic staff, the establishment of a strong methods and support infrastructure and also the development of Hull Health Trials Unit.

The Institute Administrator will work closely with and support the work of the Institute Co-ordinator and other colleagues across HYMS & FHS, the NHS and the University of Hull. Initially the role will involve supporting the work of the research groups in implementing systems and processes for the monitoring of research grants and staff contracts.  You will also be involved in the development of the Hull Health Trials Unit, working with the Project Manager to implement this major development, which will be an engine for growth in trials activity across the area and in co-operation between the University and the Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

You will have exceptional organisational and communication skills and the ability to work independently and with initiative. The Institute is a venture which involves many parties and stakeholders and you will therefore need to be able to develop strong relationships with a wide range of colleagues across several sites.  Some knowledge of biomedical, clinical and applied health research would be an advantage in the role.

The post will be primarily office-based at the University of Hull and will be located in the brand new Allam Medical Building on campus when it is completed in mid-2017.  It is expected some time will also need to be spent at hospital sites within the region.
