The Nuffield Council on Bioethics examines the ethical issues raised by advances in biology and medicine. It has achieved an international reputation based on quality, independence and the timeliness of its reports which both stimulate public debate in bioethics and give advice to policy-makers. We are now looking to recruit an Assistant Director to help take forward the work of the Council.
You will organise and support working parties dealing with some of the most critical and interesting issues in the field of bioethics. As part of our small, dedicated team, you will work with a wide range of academics, professionals, policy-makers and others to prepare, draft and publish reports, and to represent and promote the work of the Council. As part of the senior management team, you will be involved with the strategic development of the Council’s work.
Candidates will need a sound understanding of both science and ethics; a strong academic background in a relevant discipline; excellent drafting and organisational skills; energy, motivation, and the ability to work independently as well as in small teams.
This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in the high-profile area of bioethics, providing an opportunity to work closely in the development of policy and the promotion of debate in bioethics.
