We are looking for a Grants and Administrative Officer to join us at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Barcelona, Spain. EMBL Barcelona is the newest site and it has recently been established in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), one of the largest infrastructures in Southern Europe dedicated to translational research and which is located on the Mediterranean coast of north-eastern Spain. This dual role will have a broad range of responsibilities, including curating and executing external applications for research funding as well as contributing to the administrative team in support of maintaining a dynamic functioning EMBL Barcelona site. The postholder will have a direct reporting line to the Head of Grants Services based in Heidelberg (Germany) for Grants Officer responsibilities and a direct reporting line to the Head of Administration EMBL Barcelona/ Senior Legal Advisor based in Barcelona (Spain) for the administrative responsibilities.Concerning the Grants Officer role, it is important to outline that EMBL has a successful history in identifying and obtaining external funds to further its research activities. Our Grants Services team assists scientists across all EMBL sites in procuring funding for research projects from a variety of external sources. While Grants Services at EMBL are mostly provided centrally to all EMBL sites from its headquarters in Heidelberg, Germany, this role is intended to act as a local focal point for grants needs in Barcelona, working side-by-side with administrative colleagues on site.From the Administrative Officer role, you will be joining a small to medium sized, agile and very integrated EMBL Administration team, that is completely committed to facilitating, enabling and fostering science, working together with researchers to achieve the same goals. Some of the tasks are listed below, although there is always a novelty involved in the process of implementing and ramping-up a new EMBL site.The postholder is expected to work collaboratively and effectively with various stakeholders, both at Headquarters and locally; such as scientific teams, Grants Services, Budget Office, Legal Services, EMBLEM (for technology transfer and IP issues), Data Protection, Compliance and HR.
