Researcher Engagement Coordinator

Wellcome Genome Campus
£35,721 to £43,223
Application deadline: 
Friday May 18th 2018

A brand new and exciting opportunity has arisen to join Wellcome Genome Campus's dynamic Public Engagement team dedicated to inspiring new thinking, sparking conversation and supporting learning around genomic science and its applications.

You will lead the shaping and delivering of our growing programme of training and support activity across our Campus which plays home to the world-leading Wellcome Sanger Institute and EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute. You will also encompass our work to promote and embed a culture of engaged and responsible research and innovation (RRI) across our campus. In particular relevance to this, you will support our work within NUCLEUS - a European Commission supported project exploring practical implementation of RRI policies in research organisations, in Europe and beyond.

You will work closely with the wider public engagement team. There will also be strong cross working with companion teams across the Campus, whose roles cover training, research support, policy and communications.

This is a challenging and rewarding role, being at the heart of an energetic and visionary research campus. There will be plenty of scope for personal and professional development within the role.

You will have a first degree in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) or a field related to public engagement, impact or policy, and have a consistent track record of stakeholder and/or public engagement activities. Experience of working within busy research communities on projects of change would be valuable, as would implementation of support structures or interventions in researcher training and development.

The deadline for applications is 18th May 2018.
