ELIXIR Junior Project Manager

We are seeking a junior Project Manager with experience in EC projects to join the dynamic and international team at the ELIXIR Hub in Hinxton, UK. The main purpose of this role is to provide the project management needed for successful delivery of our externally funded projects, primarily, but not exclusively our two large Horizon 2020-funded flagship projects, ELIXIR-EXCELERATE and CORBEL.

ELIXIR-EXCELERATE has 53 partners and linked third parties spread over 17 countries with a total budget of more than €19M and drives ELIXIR’s implementation and current operations. CORBEL is an initiative of eleven biological and medical research infrastructures (BMS RIs), which together creates a platform for harmonised user access and data management. The consortium has 45 partners and linked 3rd parties with a budget of about €14M.

Working within the growing project management unit at the ELIXIR Hub, the ELIXIR junior project manager works in close collaboration with the other project managers, our technical coordinators and the external relations team at the ELIXIR Hub as well as with colleagues at the 21 national ELIXIR Nodes and other project partners throughout Europe. This is a key role in a dynamic and international environment where you, supported by senior colleagues, will have the opportunity to project manage large and complex EC grants.

It is expected that you will apply and actively contribute to further development of good project management practice and strong project management capabilities within the ELIXIR Hub and wider ELIXIR organisation. As required you may also contribute to the development and submission of further large, multidisciplinary, and multi-collaborative grant proposals to a wide range of funding agencies and organizations, including both public and private external entities.
