Oops I nearly missed this one – we’ve just had lots of jobs added to the page so I happened to see this. It’s closing on Monday.
This is a research grants administration post as opposed to a classic scicomm type of job but you do get the opportunity to “give talks to Voluntary Groups and other interested parties inside and outside of Diabetes UK“
