Vacancy: Policy Analyst (Biomedical Science)
The PHG Foundation is an established policy think tank, advocating for and providing leadership on the translation of modern biomedical technologies to improve health. It has built considerable multidisciplinary expertise, experience and networks, which it has recently begun to use to generate profitable income from public and private sector clients and consultancy, and is ready to develop this further.
We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic professional with a scientific background who is passionate about seeing biomedical research translated effectively into healthcare.
The role focuses on policy and technical challenges that are likely to arise through the combination of biomedical innovation and personalisation particularly where there are gaps in existing policies or regulations. You will provide scientific support to the Foundation’s work programme. A background in epidemiology and/or genomics is highly desirable but not essential. The role involves collaborative working both within and outside the organisation, including with policy makers, clinicians and academics.
You will be an excellent networker and have the personal qualities to work creatively and effectively in a small team of highly-motivated colleagues.
PHG Foundation is a linked exempt charity of the University of Cambridge
In return we offer a friendly, supportive working environment and an excellent benefits package.
