This is a rolling advert and may close earlier than advertised. Once a certain number of applications are received, they will be processed at regular intervals.


We are recruiting a Project Manager to contribute to the excellent applied research within CENTRIC as leading Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research. The position is dedicated to the recently funded UKRI project “3PO - Protecting public-facing professionals and their dependents online". 3PO is an ambitious, multi-disciplinary project lead by CENTRIC and conducted with researchers from UCL, Oxford, Cambridge and Napier University.


Working with the Principal Investigator of 3PO, you will undertake research and project management, supporting the coordination of research and project activities inside CENTRIC as well as with outside partners, including quality assurance and financial reporting.

You’ll have an honours degree in a scientific or engineering field, with a PhD desirable but not essential. Experience of project coordination, excellent organisation skills and the ability to manage competing demands are essential to this role. Exceptional communication and presentation skills are key, alongside the ability to work both independently and collaboratively on projects and as part of a team. You should be diligent with excellent attention to detail. Willingness to travel within the UK, and abroad if required, is also essential.



For this job we particularly welcome applications from minority ethnic applicants who are underrepresented in this area at Sheffield Hallam.
