Do you want to help inspire and support biomedical and health researchers to fulfil their potential? 

Developing talented researchers through funding and careers support is one of the Academy’s strategic challenges and at the heart of our vision to improve UK and global health through research. The Senior International Programme Officer is a new post, and you will be primarily responsible for overseeing the international element of our career development programmes work at the Academy. This is a key role, contributing to the delivery of our overseas development assistance (ODA) portfolio.

This is an exciting time to join the Academy team as we implement a new international strategy alongside our new 10-year Academy strategic plan. Expanding the international impact of our career development programmes and connecting UK and international researchers are priority areas for our team.

You will work across the international policy and programmes teams, setting up and delivering three new career development workshops to be held in different countries, in coordination with the proposed global health policy workshops on topics such as one health, mental health and maternal and child health (topics to be finalised). You will research potential partners, experts and people with an interest in researcher development in the host country, organise speakers and training sessions, manage the events and collate outputs and learnings to inform future events. This is an opportunity to learn more about the Academy’s career development offer including mentoring, leadership training, community portals and funding schemes.
