EARMA is looking for an engaged and enthusiastic colleague to manage the SOPs4RIproject and possibly other projects in the future. This is a European research project (Horizon2020) on Research Integrity. The goal of the project is to create a toolbox for organisations to deal with Research Integrity. More information on: https://www.sops4ri.eu/ The successful candidate will be the link between the project and the EARMA community to execute the project in the best possible way. The person therefore doesn’t need to be an expert in Research Integrity. The person we are looking for should however be able to manage a project and engage with a community. The expertise of the community and the relevant stakeholders must be used to help our project partners and to advance the project. Therefore, especially project management skills and people skills are essential. An excellent verbal and written command of the English language is also essential. Other languages are welcomed but not required.
The Project Manager will report directly to the EARMA Managing Director and will be coached by the Managing Director.
The Project Manager should be prepared to travel for work at least 2 times per year and to organise and host 1-3 events per year in Belgium (mostly Brussels) for 40-80 people with support of a logistics partner.
The successful applicant will start as soon as possible and the end date of the current project will also be the end date of the contract 31/12/2022. There will be a yearly evaluation. Additionally, in May 2022, the status of the project, the functioning of the job holder and status of the EARMA office will be evaluated.
Location of employment: EARMA office in Leuven with a possible exception if EARMA judges the persons expertise, experience and fit-in to warrant a different location. This exception is only relevant if that different location is found practical and economical by EARMA.
