This is a great opportunity for a social scientist/philosopher/lawyer with an interest in health policy to work with a world-leading think tank that uses research, analysis and advocacy to accelerate the impact of cutting edge biomedical science in healthcare.
As part of our busy team, you will have many opportunities to challenge yourself and to learn more about both exciting advances in biomedicine and the social, ethical, political and legal contexts that impact on their use in healthcare.
To succeed in the role you will have humanities and scientific expertise with ideally a good first degree in a relevant humanities subject (e.g. law, social sciences or philosophy). A postgraduate academic or professional qualification in health/medical law and ethics or biological science, medicine, public health or public policy is desirable.
You will have strong project management
skills, a talent for writing and communicating complex issues to a variety of
audiences and an ambition to influence public policy through your work. You must
have the personal qualities to work well with fellow professionals and experts
in a multidisciplinary environment, on interesting policy projects that combine
the latest science and technologies with their ethical, legal, social and
economic implications. You will also be committed to helping the PHG Foundation
to further develop its reputation as an independent health policy think-tank.
