Course Coordinator for the EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies (Fixed Term)

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT, https:// is a flagship programme of the University of Cambridge which educates future leaders in sensor technologies and their application. The programme includes a bespoke Masters of Research (M.Res.) in the first year, followed by a 3 year PhD and connects 20 departments and 40 industrial partners. More than 60 PhD students are currently enrolled in the programme, coming from a diverse field of scientific backgrounds. Peer-to-peer learning and leadership training are key elements of the Sensor CDT.

The purpose of the role is to provide administrative support to the Sensor CDT team. The successful candidate will be an essential team member of the centre's operational team (director, two co-directors and programme manager), providing administrative support and playing a key role in delivering a high-profile programme in education and research.

You will work in a dynamic, exciting and creative environment and be part of a motivated and friendly team, which meets frequently to take decisions and to think of solutions together. The role requires organisation of regular events, the annual Sensors Day conference, budgets, co-ordination of courses, handling sensitive data and liaison with senior members of staff from academia and industry. You will also organise travel arrangements, keep diaries, and take minutes at meetings.

Excellent organisational, communication, and team working skills and attention to detail are essential requirements for the post.

You will work closely with the CDT Programme Manager as well as the Co- Directors of the programme. Recent events have included the Sensor team challenge where the entire MRes student cohort together tackles a problem defined by the UN's sustainable development goals and the International Sensors Day conference recently held in Seville, Spain. You will work alongside other programme co-ordinators, from other Masters courses in the department, with whom you will liaise regularly in order to share information, best practice, and to provide mutual support.

You will be educated to HND, HNC, level 4/5 vocational qualifications or equivalent level of practical experience, ideally in a Higher education environment.
