Centre for Doctoral Training Manager
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Computational Statistics and Data Science (COMPASS) offers exceptional graduates a four-year doctoral training programme, underpinned by world-class research, government and industrial expertise. This new doctoral training centre, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), is hosted by the School of Mathematics’ Institute for Statistical Science at the University of Bristol. Based in the recently refurbished £35M Fry building, the new home for Mathematics, the Centre is a key component of the University’s graduate training programme for Data Science. The Centre has partners with other Schools in the Science Faculties, in the Bristol Medical School and the Faculties of Social Sciences and Engineering and twelve partners in industry and government.
We are looking to recruit an exceptional individual to take up the role of Centre Manager. Reporting to the Director, Professor Guy Nason, the CDT Manager will take sole responsibility for the administrative running of the Centre including strategic and operational planning; managing Centre finances; administering student records and processes (from recruitment to graduation); event management; pursuit of funding and long-term engagement with academic partners; public engagement and impact activities. The Manager, along with the External Partner Liaison Officer and co-Director, has a key role in facilitating effective interaction with industry and government with the aim of developing sustainable partnerships to further our external training and research opportunities.
