Project Manager Implementation Integrity Policy

The University of Twente (UT) attaches great importance to the integrity of its employees and students and is constantly working to strengthen its organization in the field of integrity. The University of Twente has the ambition to create a “House of Integrity” where scientific integrity, social integrity and business integrity are part of and are approached integrally. To this end, the UT has set up a program with activities that also include the implementation of the duties of care of the institution regarding scientific integrity, in accordance with the new Dutch code of conduct of the Association of Universities (VSNU, 2018). A number of projects are already in the implementation phase, such as the formation of ethics committees, research data management and training courses for PhD students. Other projects and initiatives are in the preparation phase.

We are looking for a project manager and secretary to coordinate and support the implementation of this process.

As a project manager you are responsible for drawing up a detailed implementation plan (phase 1), in consultation with faculties and relevant departments of the University of Twente. This plan indicates how, who, when and under what conditions the action lines are implemented. The aim is to gain insight into which relevant activities are already afoot and what appropriate next steps are. You coordinate this with the faculties and service departments, for example through a round of discussions with contact persons. You ensure appropriate prioritization that matches the needs of the stakeholders.

  • You also supervise a number of ongoing initiatives and support them in the role of secretary (such as implementation process ethics policy, website integrity). You advise and support the faculties and services in strengthening their integrity-related organization.
  • You support and advise the steering committee responsible for the implementation of the integrity policy on behalf of the University of Twente.
  • With proper functioning, an extension of the assignment (phase 2) is possible, whereby you are responsible for the supervision and coordination of existing initiatives and new activities to be started up.
  • You report to the chairman of the steering group. You will work in the unit of the chair of the steering committee.
