Public Engagement and Communications Coordinator, Cambridge Institute for Medical Research, Cambridge (UK).
Part time, £27,929-£32,348 pro rata
The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) is a cross-Department research institute in the University of Cambridge’s School of Clinical Medicine. At the interface between laboratory research and the clinic, CIMR's mission is to determine the molecular mechanisms of disease in order to advance human health.
Communicating and sharing what we do is an important component of this mission, and we are recruiting a part-time Coordinator to plan, support and deliver impactful and strategy-led Public Engagement (PE) and Communications at CIMR.
CIMR’s PE vision is to foster a culture of two-way research engagement within the Institute and to increase knowledge and understanding of the Institute’s research among diverse public groups and patient audiences through the provision of accessible information. The role-holder will be the lead person on this engagement while also supporting the delivery of a broader communications strategy for external and internal audiences.
The role-holder will also liaise with key PE, Public & Patient Involvement (PPI) and Communication leads across the Schools of Clinical Medicine and wider University to ensure that CIMR PE and communications remain well-connected, informed and collaborative.
Reporting to CIMR’s Scientific Research Strategy Manager, the successful candidate will play a key role in ensuring that engaging external and internal communications are a feature of CIMR, and that meaningful engagement with diverse public audiences is seen as an essential part of research.
There is some flexibility regarding the level of part-time working hours which could vary between around 0.6 FTE to 0.8 FTE. As there is a limited funding source for the role, the role's exact duration will be dependent on the finally-agreed levels of FTE and salary, but in the first instance the role is expected to be for between around two and three years maximum.
