We are rectuiting a Research Manager for the CCAT project.
This is an 15-month post with “Coastal Communities Adapting Together” (CCAT) which is a 30-month project funded by EU INTERREG under the Ireland-Wales Co-operation Programme 2014-2020 Priority Axis 2: Adaptation of the Irish Sea and Coastal Communities to Climate Change. The CCAT project aims to build resilience, facilitate marine and climate citizenship, and realise the potential of the Irish Sea region by (re) connecting coastal communities with their place, their dynamic coastal systems and our changing climate. The project will engage communities in Fingal (Ireland) and Pembrokeshire (Wales) with change through observation and sense-making of their environment and co-creation of solutions to identified challenges through various mechanisms such as participatory mapping, online workshops, and learning resources for schools.
The Research Manager will have oversight of the overall project and responsibility for ongoing development and evolution, monitoring and evaluation, and reporting against milestones and output indicators. The Research Manager will work closely with the Senior Responsible Officer (SRO) and Research Communications and IT Officer and Research Scientist in UCD, the Steering Committee and the funding body in directing the research.
The Research Manager will work collaboratively in a core management team in UCD of 3 people. The work will be primarily office-based but may require the post-holder to attend offsite events and meetings which will involve some travelling and overnight stays.
Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on 14th August 2020
