This is an exciting opportunity to work within the Leeds Doctoral College, part of the Student Education Service.  The Leeds Doctoral College was formed in September 2017 to provide a central and overarching umbrella organisation for all postgraduate researcher (PGR) activity in the institution, and provides enhancement opportunities and support for all the University’s PGRs.

With experience of working in an administrative role, you will have responsibility for processes relating to admissions.  You will also support wider Doctoral College activity where required; with events such as the PGR Open Days and induction events. You will be based in one of the Faculty Graduate Schools, with the possibility of working across the Doctoral College in line with fluctuations and peaks in workload.
