CSSS engages in debates about current issues and the challenges that arise through a team of leading researchers in the field of Science and Security.

The post will involve a mixture of project coordination, research and knowledge transfer work tied to a project funded by different external partners. It will involve working closely with practitioners and the delivery of a series workshops internationally. The key objectives of this role are to support the professional training courses the centre is running, produce excellent publications within the Centre's research priorities and to write and submit relevant grant applications. Line management experience would be an advantage.
With a PhD in a relevant subject area, and/or professional experience in the field, the ideal candidate will have proven experience in attracting research funds, a strong record of publications in leading international journals and your research interests that align with the Centre. The ability to write concise but comprehensive reports/papers and drafting proposals for external funders are essential.
