UCL Institute of Health Informatics


CDT Manager, Centre for Doctoral Training in AI-Enabled Healthcare Systems

Institute of Health Informatics, London; Grade 7 (1 FTE); Salary (incl.London allowance): £35,328-£42,701 pa; Closing Date: 23/04/19 (h.23.59); Interview Date: 3/05/19.

Context, Duties and Responsibilities

The UCL UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in AI-enabled Healthcare Systems is a new CDT starting in October 2019 with a programme that consists of a 1-year MRes followed by a 3-year PhD. Directed by Professors Rees and Taylor and led by a team of outstanding UCL academics, our training covers everything from modular learning to critical assessment skills and is strongly multi-disciplinary, bridging the gap between engineering, clinical sciences and industry. Each project is led by a supervisory team, drawn from our pool of over 50 supervisors, with expertise in both the relevant area of AI and the relevant clinical specialty. A comprehensive training programme ensures our students develop the skills to confidently produce academic research papers, deliver presentations at conferences and make significant contributions to their chosen research project.

As part of the CDT, a new MRes programme is being introduced and the post-holder will lead on administration for this programme. As a member of the Institute education administration team, the post-holder will also share responsibility for education administration tasks in general; for example, the student load exercise and updating the Institute website. As part of a small team, the post-holder will be required to provide cross-cover as required and will work collaboratively with colleagues.

This role provides the essential professional services support for the CDT and is key in making the CDT a success that is visible to the outside world (e.g. via website and social networks). The role-holder reports directly to the Institute Manager but will liaise closely with the CDT Directors for day-to-day duties.

The post-holder will be a key member of the IHI education administration team and lead on administration for the Centre for Doctoral Training, working with colleagues across the university to manage all aspects including enquiries, applications, marketing, exams and progression, organising committees, and working with relevant Faculty and Central contacts to ensure new and existing administrative processes are implemented effectively. The post-holder will lead in achieving a high quality and timely service to current and prospective students, and staff relating to the designated courses/programmes and beyond.


In order to succeed the post-holder must be collaborative, efficient, organised and take great care in attention to detail. The role requires interaction with many people within and external to UCL, so demands a professional attitude, willingness to help and a positive outlook to execute the duties outlined.
