Job Summary

Applications are invited for an Events and Communications Officer for the Human Infection Challenge Vaccine (HIC-Vac) Network.

You will provide high quality communications support (including Twitter, website and The Global Health Network site) and help design and deliver the HIC-Vac Annual Meeting and other events, as well as providing general administrative support for the Network. 

A commitment to providing innovative and inspiring opportunities for people in the UK and LMIC (low and middle income country) settings to engage with HIC-Vac’s work is essential, as is an understanding of how to be innovative across the digital communications landscape. 

Vaccines are amongst the most practical and cost-effective ways of mitigating the impact of infectious disease, especially in Low and Middle Income countries (LMIC). Although they already prevent many infections, new or improved vaccines are needed. Human infection challenge (HIC) is an excellent way to expedite vaccine development, enabling vaccines to be tested at reduced cost while providing abundant information about disease pathogenesis and mechanisms of protection. It is an exciting and growing field. 

Over the last five years we have built a network of researchers with interest and expertise in human challenge (https://www.hic-vac.org/); this has supported substantive new challenge programs, providing training and capacity building, boosting public awareness and engagement, and developing ethical and regulatory framework support.

  • Planning, organising, facilitating and delivering interactive, educational and informative content, events and activities about the Network’s research for internal and external stakeholders.
  • Coordinating HIC-Vac’s contribution to events targeting the general public.
  • Supporting the HIC-vac Network manager in the management and administration of the Network and related activities.
  • Supporting the logistical organisation of meetings, training events and other Network events as requested.

Essential requirements

  • A degree or relevant vocational qualification, or equivalent experience.
  • Experiences in writing and editing published content, e.g. website, blog or newsletter.
  • Science literate, with a background in vaccines, infection or medicine.
  • Experience in working in an administrative capacity.
