Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
The Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC) at Tyndall National Institute seeks a dynamic and customer focused Research Programme Manager. We are a Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) funded Research Centre that brings together over 160 researchers from the Tyndall National Institute, Cork Institute of Technology, Dublin City University, Trinity College Dublin and University College Cork to develop new light enabled technologies. Our work focuses on developing the next generation of highly-compact and miniaturised photonics technologies in order to tackle some of society’s greatest challenges, including revolutionising the speed of data transfer for the continued growth of the internet, delivering new smart medical devices for improved patient outcome and developing instrumentation for point-of-care diagnostics and wearable devices.
We have an ambitious plan to grow IPIC by 40% over the period 2019 to 2021 and as a result are seeking to expand our team, including the recruitment of a Research Programme Manager. The successful applicant will oversee all IPIC Research Projects, including our four Platform Research Themes focussed on the development of game-changing technologies, and the many parallel industry projects with some of the world’s largest technology companies. The role will drive project management excellence right across the Centre to ensure efficient and effective delivery of research projects, with the objective to maximise outputs, such as high quality scientific publications, prototypes and Intellectual Property (IP). The role will also be responsible for the development of project management skills at all levels in IPIC, from Principal Investigators to PhD students, and will nurture a culture of continuous improvement so learnings are captured and shared across the Centre. In addition you will have a significant external facing role and will work with both academic and industrial research teams based in Ireland, across Europe, the US and Asia.
