Help us communicate on cutting-edge science

Evidence-based facts and scientific publications are key to informing political decisions. This is why the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) takes part in several EU-funded research projects and works closely with research institutes, universities and health actors to study the impacts of environmental pollution on health. Our role is to bring our policy and communication expertise to the table.

The projects we work on are at the cutting-edge of environmental health science. Research subjects include endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and reproductive health, exposome, microplastics, climate, air pollution and the urban environment.

We are looking for a new Science Communications Officer – someone who:

…   has native or near native level English writing skills

…   has a knack for understanding complex, scientific content and re-package it into accessible and compelling stories

…   is able to develop and implement successful multi-channel communication strategies

Does this sound like you?

As our new Science Communications Officer, you’ll be responsible for the delivery of communications and dissemination activities related to HEAL’s participation in research projects. This will involve coordinating all of the research projects’ communication and dissemination activities, developing and implementing effective communications strategies, elaborating informative materials, and building and sharing compelling stories that showcase research findings towards policy, with a focus on science to policy communication.
