The Centre for Turkey Studies (CEFTUS) founded in 2011 with the support of former Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, is seeking a new Research and Grants Coordinator to coordinate research tasks and secure grant funding.
CEFTUS, which celebrated its 5th anniversary in October 2016, organises public forums and roundtable events, fundraising and networking receptions and awards ceremonies. CEFTUS conducts research projects, closely follows regional politics, and seeks to provide a bridge between Turkey and the UK.
CEFTUS’ office is based just next to Waterloo station.
If you would like to apply to be part of the CEFTUS team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a CV and short cover letter. This is an exciting opportunity as the successful candidate would also work on CEFTUS’ other projects such as the British Kebab Awards, among others.
