The Department of Social Policy and Intervention (DSPI) is a world-leading centre of excellence for research and teaching in social policy and the development and evaluation of social interventions. We are seeking to appoint a highly organised and motivated Project Manager to join an international research team led by Professor Lucie Cluver.
Professor Cluver works closely with the South African government, USAID-PEPFAR, UNICEF, the World Health Organisation and with other international NGOs, to provide evidence that can improve the lives of children and adolescents affected by HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa. Professor Cluver and her group lead large-scale longitudinal surveys and randomised controlled trials of interventions, combined with participatory qualitative research.
This role is fixed-term for 1 year initially and is offered on a full-time basis. The post is available from mid-August 2019.

A highly organised individual, you will be able to work to tight deadlines, as well as build strong collaborative relationships. Previous experience of research fieldwork in South Africa and working in Higher Education are highly advantageous.
We are committed to fostering an environment of equality, diversity and inclusion. The hours may be worked flexibly to complement caring responsibilities and applications are welcomed from part-time workers seeking a job share position – please state preferred hours and working pattern in your application.
