The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 47 500 students and 6 400 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

The Centre on Global Migration (CGM) at the University of Gothenburg is searching for an administrative coordinator with a specific focus on communication.

CGM is a network-based research centre established in 2017. The centre supports multidisciplinary research on global migration. Researchers connected to CGM are located in different departments and the working language is both English and Swedish. The centre is located at the School of Global studies, where also the administrative coordinator will be located.

Job assignments
We are looking for a person to work primarily with communication and the visibility of migration research and CGM's outward activities. The administrative coordinator will be the editor of the centre’s website and organize conferences and seminars. Other tasks include proof-reading and translating texts, taking meeting minutes as well as assisting in project applications and publications. Financial administration such as handling invoices is also included.

We are looking for someone that:

• Has a relevant university degree within the areas of social sciences, humanities or economics
• Has a documented very good ability in speech and writing in English and Swedish
• Has experience of research communication, especially through websites, press and social media
• Has experience in research administration, particularly language checking, conference support, networking and research funding.
• Is creative, self-motivated and has good interpersonal skills.

Since the work requires daily contact with people from different countries and research approaches, emphasis will be placed on suitability and character. You also need to be flexible, with a readiness to deal with many different tasks a small unit needs to manage on a daily basis. The person we are looking for also needs to be able to independently plan the work and make priorities. Since the working language of CGM is predominantly English, an excellent ability to speak and write in English is a requirement.

The above training, experience and qualities are all parts of the requirements for the position.

Type of employment: Permanent with initial probationary period of 6 months. Extent: 80 % Location: School of global studies. First day of employment: As soon as possible
