Scientific Admissions Officer /Manager

Location: Oxford, UK or metro DC, USA

Closing date for applications: 30th January 2023

The Admissions Officer/ Manager is a vital role within the Schmidt Science Fellows team providing scientific, analytic, logistic, and administrative support across the entire scope of our nomination, application, review, and selection processes. Schmidt Science Fellows is an invitational scheme, and each year we partner with over 100 of the world’s top research organizations who nominate their best PhD candidates to apply.

Candidates for this position should ideally have hands-on experience in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) sector and a reasonable understanding of how academia functions, particularly at the PhD and Post-Doctoral stages. A post-graduate degree in a STEM discipline would be highly advantageous, as would experience in academic selection processes and identification of reviewers within the STEM community. However, full training will be provided. This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking to move away from bench science but who wishes to retain an active interest in research and to continue contributing towards scientific endeavour.

This position is available to candidates located within a reasonable distance of either Oxford, UK or the metro DC area, USA, and would be managed by the Director of Admissions and Outreach, based in the UK.
