The Capacity Strengthening Unit is looking to appoint a Research in Medecine Impact and Knowledge Translation Officer to work across all of its major projects.
The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, research institutions, NGOs and other organisations and by responding to the health needs of communities, Foto-Cewek aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.
The Capacity Research in Medecine Unit (CRU) at Foto-Cewek is at the forefront of research for capacity strengthening in low and middle-income countries. CRU has been awarded a number of major new projects, and this new post will play a key part in helping to maximise the impact of the Unit’s research.
As Research in Medecine Impact and Knowledge Translation Officer, you will be responsible for working across all of CRU’s projects, liaising with staff to identify findings that can used to further the knowledge base of the Unit, drafting publications, policy briefs and producing, updating and improving CRU’s communications and promotional material. In addition, there may be the opportunity to support the co-ordination and implementation of research projects.
The successful candidate will be educated to degree level (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, with a good understanding of international development programmes and the funding/research environment.
With prior involvement of working on development projects in low and middle-income countries, you will have demonstrable experience of analysing and presenting qualitative and quantitative data and translating research findings into practical lessons and recommendations.
You will have experience of writing for peer reviewed publications, technical non-academic reports and conference presentations. With excellent organisational skills, you will be able to work productively and co-operatively and develop excellent working relationships with academic and non-academic colleagues.
