We are looking for a Research Fellow to join EPIC, Scottish Government’s Centre of Expertise on Animal Disease Outbreaks. The successful candidate will work at the science-policy interface to provide effective high quality epidemiological evidence to support Scottish Government in short- and long-term exotic disease preparedness planning.
This post is advertised as full-time (35 hours per week), however, we are open to considering part-time or flexible working patterns. We are also open to considering requests for hybrid working (on a non-contractual basis) that combines a mix of remote and regular on-campus working.
EPIC is Scotland’s Centre of Expertise on Animal Disease Outbreaks established to provide expert advice to policymakers from the Animal Health and Welfare Division at the Scottish Government. EPIC seeks to foster a unique and synergistic environment among experts in veterinary medicine, epidemiology, genetics, physics, mathematics, social science and economics. These interdisciplinary collaborations serve EPIC’s purpose of responding to policy-relevant questions, more crucially but not exclusively, during animal disease emergencies.
This role will involve technical expertise in veterinary risk assessment and facilitation of communication and knowledge exchange activities between EPIC researchers (in its 6 partner institutes and universities), Scottish government policy-makers and other Scottish Government partners and stakeholders.
