NQIT Communications Manager University of Oxford, Department of Physics United Kingdom

NQIT Communications Manager (maternity cover)

Department of Physics, Parks Road, Oxford

Grade 7: £31,604 - £38,833 with a discretionary range to £42,418 p.a.

A maternity cover position is available for an experienced communications expert who is keen to lead the communications strategy for a high profile flagship research project led by the University of Oxford.


The size and complexity of this strategically critical award presents a rare opportunity for someone looking to embrace fast moving communications challenges in a world leading research environment, together with management of a wide and varied programme of internal and public facing events. Effective communication with consortium members, partners, stakeholders and the public is crucial to the Hub’s mission and this role is vital to the delivery of these objectives.


The Networked Quantum Information Technology Hub (NQIT) Hub builds on the world’s most advanced quantum technologies to develop practical technologies in entirely new sectors. It is funded by a £38m grant awarded to a consortium of nine universities and is supported by a number of commercial and governmental partners. As part of EPSRC’s £270m National Quantum Technologies Programme, the Hub has an international profile and corresponding responsibilities to achieve the highest levels of success. More information can be found at nqit.ox.ac.uk.


Applicants should either possess a sciences degree or evidence of the ability to engage rapidly and effectively with unfamiliar technical material. Understanding of quantum information and previous experience of working in a university environment are not essential as this role also has an industry focus. However, excellent communication skills gained with a variety of media and evidence of successful oral and written presentation of technical material are essential. Candidates will be expected to have demonstrable experience in the ability to liaise effectively with wide range of people including the general public, internal staff, industrial collaborators and funding agencies.


Please direct enquiries about the role to Frances Sweeney (frances.sweeney@physics.ox.ac.uk).


You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.


Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Monday 4 June 2018 can be considered.
