Vacancy: Policy Analyst (Biomedical Science)

A great opportunity for a scientist with an interest in health policy to work with a world-class think tank that uses research, analysis and advocacy to accelerate the impact of cutting edge biomedical science in healthcare

As part of our science team, you will have many opportunities to challenge yourself and to learn more about both exciting advances in biomedicine and the social, political and legal contexts that impact on their use in healthcare.

You will have a passion for science, 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. A scientific background in genomics is essential, and experience in data science or clinical science is desirable.

You must also be committed to helping the PHG Foundation to further develop its reputation as an independent health policy think tank.
