This is an exciting opportunity for a talented and ambitious Research Communications Officer to join our team!

British Society for Immunology

As a Learned Society of over 4,200 members, we are an influential and authoritative voice for immunology, a dynamic field at the cutting-edge of biomedical science. This is a dynamic time for immunology; the work we do for our members and the wider immunology community is more important than ever in helping to disseminate ideas, promote innovation and support careers.

The role

We’re looking for a full-time Research Communications Officer for a 12-month fixed term post. This creative role will work on a specific new and ambitious project, aimed at bringing together a national consortium of immunology. It is an excellent opportunity to build your research communications experience on an exciting, fast-moving and impactful project. We are looking for a research communications professional with a strong understanding and passion for science who can use their skills to deliver the communication elements of this new project.

As an integral member of the consortium team, the role-holder will be responsible for executing the consortium’s communications activities to a diverse range of audiences including scientists, the media, policymakers and the public. This role will lead on internal communications, external communications to the wider immunology community and engagement with the media, as well as actively seeking out new opportunities to promote the consortium’s achievements.

The role is ideally suited to an intelligent and organised graduate/postgraduate, with excellent interpersonal skills, who is looking to build up their experience in research communications. The successful applicant will be able to develop further in their career as part of a fun, hardworking and extremely ambitious team.

We have a London office in Holborn but all staff are currently working from home. We are reviewing our ways of working, with a likely move to a mix of office and remote working.

If you feel that you have the required skills for this role, please apply today!

Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications that we receive, it is not possible to respond to all applicants individually. We request no contact from agencies.
