[Job] Prostate Action, Research Co-ordinator, ??25-30k, clos 15 Feb 2012 #scicomm ish jobs

Generally these sorts of jobs are not your classic #scicomm job and are largely admin (although still great because you’re involved in the process of funding science and it’s cool job for sciencey types) but I spotted this “Act as main scientific spokesperson for the charity with regard to research stories, and carry out site visits to funded researchers.”

You’re also reporting directly to the Chief Exec. I declare this to be probably a fairly awesome post 🙂
