Closing Date:

We are seeking a self-motivated IT Officer to provide ICT support for research programmes in the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit (MRC BNDU).

The MRC BNDU is uniquely multidisciplinary and operates over two sites at the University of Oxford (Department of Pharmacology and Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences). The Unit aims to understand the interactions between nerve cells that are critical for brain functions, and to exploit these to develop novel therapies for Parkinson’s disease and memory disorders.

You will play a crucial role in managing and maintaining the Unit’s IT systems, networks and equipment, and in providing advice and local support for Unit members. You will help to develop and implement IT strategies and policies and, as required, will liaise with other IT staff across the University.

Educated to degree level or equivalent, you should have high-level understanding, experience and technical competence across a broad range of computing areas including user support, hardware, server operating systems, Windows and Linux networking and data management. You should demonstrate a creative approach to problem solving, the ability to work independently and to communicate effectively. Experience of an academic environment would be an advantage.

This part-time post (0.6 FTE, 22.5 hours per week) is available now, and will be based on the main site of the MRC BNDU at the Department of Pharmacology. This post is a University Grade 6 (06S) position with a starting salary of between £27,629 and £32,958 per annum (pro rata). This post is fixed-term for up to 30 months (end date of not later than 31st March 2020), externally funded by the Medical Research Council.

This post is part of a pilot scheme testing a new Supporting Evidence form in place of the more usual ‘supporting statement’. Please ensure that you carefully read the How to Apply section provided in the Job Description, which you can download from the link below along with the required Supporting Evidence form.

Informal enquiries can be addressed to Ben Micklem.

Applications must be made via the University of Oxford’s online recruitment system, Vacancy ID 130180.

The closing date for applications for this post is 12.00 midday UK time on Wednesday 13th September 2017.

Interviews to be held on Monday 25th or Tuesday 26th September 2017.
