The Centre on Global Migration at the University of Gothenburg (CGM) is searching for a part time research administrator with a specific focus on communication.
CGM is a network-based research centre that was established in 2017. The centre aims to support multidisciplinary research on global migration. Researchers connected to CGM are located in different departments and the working language is both English and Swedish. The administrative centre is located at the School of Global studies, where also the research administrator position will be located.
We are looking for a person to work primarily with communication and the visibility of CGM's outward activities, but also with other research administrative tasks such as assistance in connection with conferences, seminars and CGM's meetings, proof-reading texts, as well as assisting in writing project applications and publications.
We are looking for someone that:
• Has a relevant university degree within the areas of social sciences, humanities or economics
• Has a documented very good ability in speech and writing in English and Swedish
• Has experience of research communication, especially social media and websites
• Has experience in research administration, particularly language checking, conference support, networking and research funding.
• Is creative, self-motivated and has good interpersonal skills.
Since the work requires daily contact with people from different countries and research approaches, emphasis will be placed on suitability and character. It is also preferable that you are flexible and stress resistant, with a readiness to deal with many different tasks a small unit needs to manage on a daily basis.
The above training, experience and qualities are all parts of the requirements for the position.
There is a possibility to extend the percent from January 2018 for this position.
