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. This work is currently being completed, with the launch of the next phase of the CUP due this Spring.
As Senior Research Interpretation Officer, you will play a key role in the next phase of the CUP. The main purpose of the role is to be a participating member of the CUP Scientific Secretariat, providing research and administrative support to the CUP work, including providing coordination and support to the RI team, managing specific items for the outcomes after a diagnosis of cancer work and contributing to work in the new phase of the CUP.
We are looking to recruit someone who has a background in nutrition or public health, with a Masters degree in a relevant subject. We are seeking someone with experience of writing scientifically, copywriting, editing and proofreading, with good attention to detail and with experience of working with scientific research/literature and interpreting research. We require someone who can co-ordinate and manage projects, who can produce concise, well-constructed written communications with the ability to present orally in a clear and persuasive manner and who can provide administrative support, including taking meeting minutes.
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.
