Programmes Manager in the Cambridge-MIT Institute

The University wishes to recruit a senior administrator who will be seconded to the Cambridge-MIT Institute (CMI) as the Programmes Manager. CMI has offices in central Cambridge.

CMI has been established to fund a wide range of teaching and research projects as well as student exchanges between the University and MIT in Boston. It has been funded by HM Government and operates as a company limited by guarantee. One of the core objectives of the venture is the enhancement of the UK's performance in the areas of productivity, competitiveness, and entrepreneurship.

The post is challenging as it combines the need for design and management of office processes for information transfer and authorization with that of liaison and provision of advice within an academic context. The successful candidate will be familiar with a university or research environment, skilled in the application of IT to office and communication processes, and will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills. The Programmes Manager can expect to have dealings with academic staff on both sides of the Atlantic, especially throughout the sequence of projects: submission, assessment, announcement, and monitoring, both of research grants and other programmes associated with education. This will involve correspondence and the preparation of reports. Education to at least the level of a good first degree is essential. The Programmes Manager will report to the Cambridge Executive Director of CMI, whilst responding to other Cambridge and US Directors of the company on a daily basis.

The appointment will be for three years in the first instance. The salary will be in the range £21,435 to £33,058 a year, according to age and experience (equivalent to the Assistant Registrary scale).

Applications should be sent to Professor A. H. Windle, Cambridge-MIT Institute, 10 Millers Yard, Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RQ, from whom further details are available. They should be accompanied by the names and addresses of two referees who know the applicant's work. The closing date for receipt is 15 March 2001.
