Doctoral Support Officers (3)

We are seeking enthusiastic and organised professionals to work as part of a team of three Doctoral Support Officers providing specialised administrative support for Goldsmiths postgraduate research programmes (doctoral research). Working within – and with the support of - the experienced Graduate School team, the postholders will, in particular, provide key points of contact and support for doctoral researchers, supervisors and departmental PGR Convenors within a defined group of academic departments.

 

A key aspect of this support will be to establish accurate records of all doctoral researchers within these departments and to contribute to the key administrative processes necessary to maintain these. The roles will also involve input into the Graduate School’s support and pastoral care provision for doctoral students and necessary administrative functions relating to their academic development (including events such as departmental induction and disciplinary training).

 

An understanding of the issues relevant to doctoral students and this particular level of study, along with experience of the administration that is critical for delivering an excellent student experience will be important. The postholders will also be required to build and maintain strong working relationships with designated departmental PGR Convenors and supervisors within their departments and to work with them to deliver key support for their students.
