[Job, Warwick] NHS Evidence – #Diabetes vacancy: Information Specialist, ??27-35k, closing 14 April, #scicomm #library

This one comes from the Clinical Librarians mailing list. It’s a job with quite a bit of science communication potential. I don’t have a formal library qualification yet that wouldn’t have stopped me from applying for this job as I’d like to think there are plenty of transferable skills from my science background. Obviously ‘your mileage may vary’ etc (and of course they might have turned me down anyway!). Personally I think there’s a great deal of overlap between the fields of science librarians / medical information specialists and science (health) communication folk.

This is the library http://www.library.nhs.uk/diabetes/
They’re on Twitter http://twitter.com/NHSEv_diabetes – they’re even on Facebook 🙂

NHS Evidence – diabetes is one of several ‘specialist collections’ within the NHS Evidence stable – more here http://www.library.nhs.uk/specialistcollections/ – these are good sources of quality information on a variety of health topics.

I’ve not deleted the contact details from the email as they’re also on the website given below.
