[Job] Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Snr Health Services Improvement Officer, ??27-32k, clos 8 Nov 2010 public / patient involvement

Regular readers will be well aware of my amazement at and admiration for the sheer number of science communication jobs placed on the vacancies market by Breakthrough Breast Cancer. The list below contains all the jobs posted until 30 September 2010 but I’m pretty sure I’ve posted one or two since then but it would be a full time job to try and keep up with them all 😉

This particular one is more about PPI (patient and public involvement) so while it’s not pure #scicomm anyone interested in health / medicine and engagement will probably find this very worthwhile, and therefore it’s going in the archive.
