Would you like to work on a unique evidence-based resource that plays a key role in advancing knowledge about preventable cancers?
An exciting opportunity has arisen to work on World Cancer Research Fund International’s Continuous Update Project (CUP). The CUP analyses global cancer prevention and survival research linked to diet, nutrition, physical activity and weight. Over the past year the project has been going through a transition period to set it up for the next phase of its development, scheduled to start in the spring of 2021.
As the Research Interpretation Manager you will play a key role in taking forward the next phase of the CUP. This will include project managing and leading on specific components of the work, as well as providing general support as part of the Secretariat. You will contribute to the development of the overall strategic approach and support the Head of Research Interpretation and the Director of Research in implementing the new strategy.
You will be educated to at least Masters degree level (with human nutrition and/or public health being the subject of either the undergraduate or postgraduate degree), have an understanding of epidemiology and biological mechanisms as applied to diet, nutrition, physical activity and weight and cancer, strong project management skills and experience of evidence synthesis and interpretation.
This is a permanent role within the Science and Research Department at World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) International. WCRF International is a not-for-profit organisation that leads and unifies a network of cancer prevention charities based in Europe, the Americas and Asia and is responsible for cancer prevention science, policy, strategic and operational direction to the network charities.
If you are interested in this role and feel you possess the necessary requirements, please submit a current CV and covering letter (maximum 2 pages) by the closing date. You must have current right to work in the UK.
Please note: Your cover letter should highlight how your skills and experience will benefit WCRF International and equip you for the role. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we are only able to provide feedback to shortlisted candidates. If you do not hear from us within 14 days of the closing date, please assume your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion.
