The School of Physics, Engineering and Technology brings physicists and engineers together to push the frontiers of knowledge, foster innovation and meet the grand challenges facing society. Our aim is to deliver world-leading research in both fundamental and applied areas whilst developing new technologies that work for the public good, in an environment where everyone can thrive.
As a School, equality, diversity, and inclusion are central to our culture and we strive to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We aim to ensure that there is a supportive and egalitarian culture at all levels and across all staff groups and offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds. We are proud to hold Juno Champion and Athena Swan bronze awards, which recognise our commitment to creating an equitable and fully inclusive environment in which staff and students can thrive. We aim to inspire young people to engage with science and engineering through our outreach work.
We seek an experienced, personable and pro-active Programme Co-ordinator for the CoSTAR Live Lab, an R&D collaboration for the UK live performance and screen industries, led by the University of York. The lab, based at Production Park in Wakefield, will specialise in the future creative technologies for live performance.
You will work closely with the Programme Manager to support the set up and day to day running of this new and complex programme. You will be an effective, organised and pro-active team player, able to work successfully with a range of stakeholders across the creative industries (e.g., supporting partners, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Opera North), the HEI sector, policy bodies, local authorities and funders.
Interview date: 14-15 March
