About the role

The Mathematical Institute wishes to appoint an enthusiastic individual with excellent organisational skills as the Research Programme Manager of DataSig. This is a fixed term position ending 30 April 2025. This post presents an ideal opportunity to join an exciting new research programme, working closely with collaborators at other world-leading organisations. DataSig is an inter-disciplinary cross-institutional programme, centred on a large EPSRC programme grant and the substantial associated scientific activity. DataSig aims to create a powerful and generic set of mathematical and computational tools for the analysis of complex multimodal data streams, and to establish their effective use in four applied challenges: Mental Health, Radio Astronomy, Human Machine Interfaces and Computer Vision.

The Research Programme manager will be operationally responsible for ensuring that the programme can deliver each of its key challenges by managing the administration, finances, and task coordination of DataSig on a day to day basis. You will report to the programme director, Professor Terry Lyons FRS, on a day-to-day basis, and will be a member of the programme’s leadership team, along with the investigators on the EPSRC grant, from Imperial College London, Oxford, and UCL. The Alan Turing Institute in London is a project partner, and will act as a hub for cross-institutional activity. While you will be based in Oxford, it is anticipated that you will spend one day a week working at the ATI in London.

The successful candidate will be educated to first degree level (or equivalent), have excellent organisational skills, experience of the financial management of projects and the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of colleagues.
