The Department of Plant Sciences is seeking an Undergraduate Studies Administrator (Examinations). The postholder will be part of a team administering all aspects of undergraduate teaching and examining and will be accountable to the Administrators of the Departments of Zoology and Plant Sciences, and responsible to the Director of Undergraduate Teaching. The postholder will be responsible for the administration of the Preliminary Examination and the Final Honour School in Biological Sciences.


The undergraduate degree course is run jointly by the Departments of Plant Sciences and Zoology and the postholder will co-ordinate and liaise with academic staff involved in teaching and examination, with technicians and other clerical staff in both departments, and undergraduates on the Biological Sciences degree. The postholder will be expected to work independently and on their own initiative, and will be one of the central points of contact by academic staff and students for all teaching information and administration. IT skills and ability to maintain teaching databases and use spreadsheets (e.g. for producing timetables) will be necessary, as well as meticulous attention to detail and the personality to both impose and work to deadlines. The ability to work with and motivate staff and students is an essential requirement, as well as tact and diplomacy to cajole and extract information from students and academic staff. The post will work closely with the Undergraduate Studies Administrator (Course Organiser). See job description for more detailed requirements of this post.
