The Royal Veterinary College wishes to appoint an experienced Programme Manager to provide high quality operational management and ensure the successful delivery of a 3-year, £5-million, research commercialisation programme entitled ‘The Bloomsbury SET: Connecting Capability to Combat the Threat from Infectious Disease and Antimicrobial Resistance’. This Programme brings together academic and professional service teams from four specialist Colleges of the University of London, namely the London School of Economics (LSE), the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and SOAS University of London. The RVC holds the Programme’s funding.
