An exciting opportunity to work on WCRF International’s Global Cancer Update Programme
World Cancer Research Fund International (WCRFI) leads and unifies a network of cancer prevention charities based in Europe and the Americas. Our shared vision is to live in a world where no one develops a preventable cancer.
WCRFI is responsible for delivering our network science programmes. One of these is the Global Cancer Update Programme (CUP Global), previously known as the Continuous Update Project (CUP). This is our global cancer prevention and survival programme focussing on the links between diet, nutrition, physical activity and cancer. Forming the cornerstone of all our work, the project is the largest of its kind in the world. Over 140 scientists from more than 17 different countries have contributed to it. The CUP Global database is housed at Imperial College London. Trusted by oncology experts, researchers and health professionals worldwide, and regularly evaluated by an independent Panel of leading cancer experts, CUP Global is the only authoritative scientific resource of its kind in the world.
We are seeking a Head of Research Interpretation who will be responsible for managing the delivery of CUP Global. You will chair the CUP Global Secretariat and also provide support to the Assistant Director of Research and Policy and the Director of Research, Policy and Innovation in the oversight and strategic direction of the programme of work. You will also contribute to other projects such as ensuring that the WCRF network has the latest global cancer statistics, including new estimates of the preventability of cancer. More information on CUP Global can be found at https://www.wcrf.org/diet-activity-and-cancer/global-cancer-update-programme/about-the-global-cancer-update-programme/.
Educated to PhD level, you will have an understanding of epidemiology, nutrition and/or cancer and have experience or knowledge of conducting and interpreting systematic reviews. You will have strong project and people management skills, along with an ability to work in a flexible way to meet changing needs, being able to make decisions quickly and remain calm in pressured situations.
If you are interested in this role and feel you possess the necessary requirements, please submit a current CV and covering letter (maximum 2 pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org (via the 'Apply' button above) or HR, WCRF International, 140 Pentonville Road, London N1 9FW by the closing date.
