The successful candidate will be expected to take up post on 1 Aug 2022 or as soon thereafter as possible.
The Research Assistant (RA) will assist with managing two Horizon 2020 Innovative Training Network projects in conjunction with the School of Medicine and ADAPT Centre under the direct guidance of a senior project manager. The post holder will be located in ADAPT (with some remote working opportunities as desired) and will be responsible for the day-to-day implementation of the two programmes, including, but not limited to: communication with the early stage researchers (ESR) and consortium, providing support in the organisation of training events and seminars, preparation of management deliverables and financial and progress reports, liaising with the recruiting universities with regards to employment contracts and progress of PhDs and the organization of training secondments. With the two Coordinators, 29 ESRs, 21 academic partners in 8 countries, 11 industry partners and 62 planned secondments, the post holder will enable effective communication within the two consortia, between the different hosting institutions, the Research Executive Agency and with other partners.
The two training networks are called HELICAL and PROTECT. HELICAL stands for “Health Data Linkage for Clinical Benefit” and incorporates a consortium of 14 beneficiaries and 13 partner organisations across Europe with a total budget of €4.05m. It is led by Prof Mark Little. Its main goal is to link healthcare record, environmental, genomic and proteomic data in the setting of autoimmune disease in three scientific work packages. Cross cutting these is a work package focused on data governance, which places this cutting-edge research firmly in the new GDPR era. The PROTECT project (led by Prof Dave Lewis) also focusses on issues of personal data, specifically how to balance the impact on rights and interests of individuals, arising from its large-scale and continuous analysis, with the benefits to the economy and society arising from rapid innovation such analysis affords. This €3.7m network will deliver multidisciplinary training with Law, Technology Ethics and Knowledge Engineering researcher leaders across 7 beneficiaries and 5 partner organisations, via a structured research programme exploring the boundaries between these three fields.
