The University's collections - across its museums, galleries, libraries, archives, Departments and other research centres - are a superb yet under-used resource. Together, these collections offer new ways to analyse, understand and help solve some of the greatest societal challenges we face today. Collections - Connections - Communities (CCC), a new Strategic Research Initiative (SRI) of the University, will draw together expertise to promote innovative collections-based research for, and with, communities in our region and beyond.

As CCC Research Coordinator, you will help set strategic goals for the Initiative and ensure they are met. You will undertake pro-active engagement with potential research collaborators, communities and audiences; you will coordinate a programme of events and help build a new SRI website; and you will support the governance and administration of the Initiative.

Working closely with colleagues within the University of Cambridge, as well as with partners nationally and internationally, you will support the development of projects and funding applications, and assist with subsequent reporting requirements, including around budgets and impact. Working with governance groups (Steering Group, Advisory Boards), three Research Groups and three Methodology Hubs, you will coordinate activity and convene meetings. You will manage the CCC website and social media content.
