About the role
The Mathematical Institute wishes to appoint an enthusiastic individual with excellent organisational skills as the Administrator for the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Mathematics of Random Systems, a new joint initiative launched in February 2019 by the Mathematical Institute (Oxford), the Department of Statistics (Oxford) and the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London. This post presents an ideal opportunity to gain administrative experience in a thriving academic environment, providing outstanding professional support for the Centre, and working closely with colleagues in the wider department and at Imperial College. 
You will be responsible for the day-to-day administration of the Centre’s activity including the development and implementation of processes and procedures where necessary. You will be the first port of call for students and faculty involved with the Centre and you will provide advice and guidance as appropriate. You will play a key role in graduate recruitment and admissions, and the organization of training and events, and you will provide the CDT Director and Co-Directors with regular management information, including the provision of financial and planning data. As an indication of the scale of financial administration required, Random Systems had an initial budget of approximately £8 M (core project funding from EPSRC), which is supplemented by industrial funding from a range of sources. 
The CDT Administrator is an essential member of the CDT management team. Your professional reporting line will be to the Deputy Head of Academic Administration and you will work closely with the departmental Finance Manager, but on a day-to-day basis you will report to the Centre’s Director, Professor Rama Cont (Oxford) and the Co-Directors, Professor Ben Hambly (Oxford) and Professor Thomas Cass (Imperial). You will be expected to work closely with all three departments involved in the Centre: The Mathematical Institute (Oxford), the Department of Statistics (Oxford) and the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College.
