Fixed term 12 month contract (to start no later than the beginning of July 2012)
Salary range: £42,995 – £47,986
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 a Project Leader to supervise the production of a report on novel neurotechnologies that intervene in the brain.
You will undertake research, prepare, organise and support meetings of a Working Party and prepare the final report for publication. You will work with a wide range of academics, professionals and policy-makers.
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. The contract is expected to be for 12 months full-time, although the Council will consider alternative working arrangements that will meet the requirements for the post, and is happy to consider filling the role being by means of a secondment.
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.
Closing date for applications: 30 March 2012
Interviews: w/c 10 or 16 April
