COMET vacancies

Research Centre Finance Administrator

Do you have an established background in grant or financial management? Would you like to provide high level financial support to two vibrant national research centres based within the School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds?

The Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM) and the Centre for Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics (COMET) are seeking a Research Centre Finance Administrator to join our active and ambitious research teams.

CPOM and COMET provide the UK with strategic research in the exploitation of satellite measurements to study the Earth’s cryosphere and geohazards. The CPOM and COMET Directorates are based in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds, with the Centres distributed around 13 university departments across the UK. Both Centres receive long-term strategic funding from the Natural Environment Research Council, in partnership with the British Geological Survey (BGS) and the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The combined core budgets of CPOM and COMET total around £1 million per annum.

In this role, you will oversee the CPOM and COMET financial income and expenditure, providing regular reports for each Centre. You will also liaise with partner institutions to monitor financial activities and grant spend. This is a key role that demands excellent numerical skills, attention to detail, and the ability to communicate complex financial information to a range of audiences.
