Freelance Project Manager

Material Beliefs is an EPSRC public engagement project.

Initially you will be working closely with the co-investigator and researchers to create a programme of collaboration between research groups based at the Department of Design at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Engineering faculties at universities across the UK. Other team members include a film-maker, a photographer and a design consultancy.

Later you will work with the researchers to organise a series of events which show the outcomes of these collaborations to a range of audiences. Events will include large exhibitions, public and higher-ed workshops, a symposium and smaller presentations and debates.

There will also be an opportunity to get involved with other outputs, which will include academic papers, online content and printed project documentation.

You are likely to have broad experience in event organisation within science communication, and preferably be interested in helping to develop a clear and innovative evaluation methodology. Most project activity will take place in London, so it’s an advantage if you are based there.

Other requirements:
• Good communication skills, public speaking, writing and editing
• Familiarity with web based applications, blogging and content management
• Existing links to a network of science communicators
• Links to science and engineering university departments in the UK
• A background in academic research is an advantage

This will be a freelance contract for 50 days over the next 24 months, with a day rate of £160.

Please send a CV and two references with a covering letter to:

Tobie Kerridge
Department of Design
Goldsmiths College
Lewisham Way
London SE14 6NW


Closing Date: 9th February 2007
