Ability to perform literature reviews for obtaining data from data providers and running survey; and excellent written and verbal communication skills and ability to convey technical material in non-technical terms for policy and other non- academic stakeholders are essential, as is the collation, presentation of other team members’ work and integration of this into own work as required.
