We have an exciting and challenging vacancy for an experienced administrator to be appointed as a Project Administrator for a major, new research project known as ‘PopART’.
The US National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (Gates) and the Office of the US Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) are providing initial funding of US$38million for the PopART trial which is a large community-randomised trial to be carried out in Zambia and South Africa. The trial will measure the impact of a universal HIV test-and-treat intervention on population-level HIV incidence.
The workload will be demanding, requiring a constant shift in priorities. The PopART Project Administrator will be responsible for providing proactive administrative coordination and financial management to the PopART project. This will include monitoring and reporting expenditure on project budgets totalling US$38million; arranging conference calls, meetings, workshops and travel; organising the procurement and shipping of goods to overseas sites; and providing administrative and logistical support to the research team in London, Zambia and South Africa. S/he must have strong administrative, financial and organisational skills and an ability to assess priorities in order to manage workload and deadlines effectively.
The post will be full-time on Grade 5 of the professional support scale with a starting salary between £31,065 and £35,661 per annum, inclusive. The initial appointment will commence as soon as possible. Current funding is available until the end of May 2014 however, the duration of the PopART trial is five years from 1 October 2011, and a further extension of the position is likely, subject to formal confirmation of funding.
