Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of debilitating, disabling, and even fatal infectious diseases which disproportionately affect people living in poverty around the world. Founded in 2012, the London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research (LCNTDR) was created to coordinate and promote scientific research on the biology, epidemiology and control of NTDs. In this research the design, implementation, and evaluation of NTD control and elimination programmes is a priority.

The LCNTDR acts as a coordinating body between several NTD research institutions based in London – Imperial College London, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), the Natural History Museum (NHM), and the Royal Veterinary College (RVC). The Sanger Centre at the University of Cambridge and the SCI Foundation are associate members.

This role will manage all aspects of the LCNTDR and its grants and will represent and champion the work of the LCNTDR internally and externally. The role requires strong organisational skills, experience managing grant budgets and expenditure, grant development and reporting, and strong communication skills.
