[Job] Academy of Medical Sciences, Programme Officer, ??22-25k, clos 4 Nov 2010 #scicomm jobs

Oooh you get to work in Portland Place – see what you can find out about the *massive* aerial on top of the Chinese Embassy, and be first in the queue for BBC radio comedy recordings.

Records suggest I’ve not posted a job from the Academy of Medical Sciences before although they’re on the list of vacancies pages.

Spotted this one in Guardian Jobs, also got a personal recommendation.
