Doctoral Recruitment Administrators (Fixed Term)

University of Bath - Doctoral College

Be a part of our new Doctoral College

The University of Bath is proud to be one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for the quality of our research and teaching. 

We aim to grow our reputation as an international leader in graduate education and as part of achieving this aim we have established a Doctoral College, which opened in August 2017 based in the new 10 West Building. The Doctoral College pools our considerable collective expertise and resource into a specialist hub, which supports a high quality experience for each of our ever increasing number of doctoral students.

Most positions in the new structure have been filled by talented staff who are already experienced in supporting our doctoral community across the University. We are now looking for positive and able staff to join them in some additional positions and be a part of this new and exciting development.
