A part-time project manager is required to develop and evaluate an innovative model of public engagement in health related research called Café Connect. You will work with a multidisciplinary team led by Professor Ellen Townsend (School of Psychology) and Professor Joanne Hort (School of Biosciences) to run four research café events over the period of the project. Uniquely Café Connect will engage the public in ALL stages of the research lifecycle, not just dissemination. The public will be invited to contemplate, discuss and react to issues in health-related research in Nottingham Contemporary Café (a relaxed, non-intimidating environment) in the heart of the community.

The project manager will work with the project leads, engagement interns, stakeholders and participant engagers to deliver the project. You will possess or be close to completing a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline (preferably in a health-related topic). Applicants should be able to demonstrate enthusiasm about engaging with the public about research and have excellent verbal, written and presentational skills. Previous experience of project management is essential and ideally applicants will be able to demonstrate previous experience of public engagement.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Ellen Townsend, tel: +44 (0)115 8467305 or email ellen.townsend@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
