Job description

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress, and investing in research to make life-changing breakthroughs possible.

We are looking for someone with an excellent grasp of biomedical research and strong communication skills to join our Science Communications team as a Communications Officer, responsible for supporting and engaging researchers across the UK and beyond. Working closely with the Research team, you’ll support our scientists and clinicians through regular e-newsletters, social media, scientific events, career development programmes and in the promotion of our annual Research Conference – the largest annual dementia research conference in the UK.

Sitting alongside colleagues focusing on communication of research to the public, you’ll use your skills to ensure that our research audience is motivated and engaged with the work of the charity, that we’re building a world-class research base in the UK and that success stories from within the research community are disseminated across the charity effectively.

Main duties and responsibilities:

  • Building strong relationships with Alzheimer’s Research UK-funded scientists and the wider research field.
  • Support the development of information for researchers about Alzheimer’s Research UK, and our specific research initiatives.
  • Coordinate the charity’s presence and promotion of funding opportunities at external research meetings and conferences.
  • Support the Early Detection of Neurodegenerative diseases (EDoN) initiative as part of the EDoN Coordination group. Promote EDoN to researchers and maintain and develop resources to engage them with the initiative.
  • Look for creative ways to support the research community, grow the field of dementia researchers and expand the charity’s Research Network.
  • Coordinate and edit regular researcher e-newsletters and manage the researcher-facing @ARUKscientist twitter account.
  • Contribute to the charity’s press function and identify opportunities to promote ARUK-funded research through scientific trade media and thought-leadership pieces, occasionally acting as the on-call point of contact for out-of-hours press enquiries.
  • Work with the Research team to develop resources to support career development for Early Career Researchers.
  • Assist with the coordination and promotion of the Alzheimer’s Research UK Conference and other researcher-facing events around the country.
  • Support the Communications and Fundraising teams in the effective communication of research topics, as well as progress to staff across the wider charity.

Location: Granta Park, near Cambridge.

Salary: Circa £28,000 per annum, plus benefits
