Vacancy: Project Coordinator - Centre for Catholic Studies, Durham University

A grant from the Conrad N Hilton Foundation has enabled the creation of a new Project Coordinator role to be based within the Centre for Catholic Studies (CCS) at Durham University working on the Religious Life Vitality Research Project.

This is a collaborative project between Durham University, Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology, Cambridge (MBIT), and the Religious Life Institute (RLI) at Heythrop College, University of London. The Project is actually comprised of two separate but related research projects focussing on the future sustainability of Religious Life for women in East/Central Africa and a second project: Discerning the Future of Religious Life in the UK and Ireland. The projects are staffed by one common team and co-ordinated from Durham University.

The appointee will work closely with the three project Co-Directors, co-ordinating project activities, administration and finances, monitoring project progress and coordinating dissemination of research findings. Responsibility also covers communication within the extended research team, including partners in academic and religious organisations.

An exciting opportunity for a graduate with excellent organisational and communication skills, experience in project management and administration including collecting and analysing complex data sets.

This is a two-year part-time 0.5FTE fixed term post at Grade 6, £31,206 pro rata, to start as soon as possible.

Full details of the post can be found at:

The closing date for applications is 11.30pm Wednesday 10 August 2016.
Interviews will take place in Durham on Wednesday 31 August 2016.
