DESCRIPTION OF ROLE:
We are seeking a highly motivated full time Communications Manager to join the Cambridge Centre for AI Medicine (CCAIM) directed by Professor Mihaela van der Schaar and co-directed by Professor Andres Floto.
The post will be based in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. You will be part of the CCAIM group, an elite, multidisciplinary centre created to produce cutting-edge machine learning research to solve complex problems in biomedical science, medical discovery and healthcare delivery.
The postholder will work with our research team to develop our communications strategy, designing and implementing CCAIM’s key communications, aims and objectives. Having identified opportunities to highlight the research, the postholder will create high-quality written and visual content and materials as well as editorial report. They will also provide comprehensive operational and administrative support to the group, while building strong working relationships across the university.
The postholder will be responsible for the extraction and curation of clinical and biological metadata, implementing machine learning methods in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary group of researchers within CCAIM.
The Communications Manager will position us as thought-leaders on the global stage. They should be passionate about good communication, energetic and very well organized; have a good degree-level qualification in a science-based subject/Level 6 vocational qualification or equivalent experience; have experience in a broad range of communications disciplines and have communicated complex science to diverse audiences. They will also need excellent planning and organisational skills, writing and editing skills, and the ability to build effective relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
Besides our research, our reputation will also hinge on a variety of online and in-person events and initiatives that the postholder will help to organise and promote, such as our upcoming seminar series. They will also build our presence online through our social media channels and of course the centre’s website, which is a WordPress site. Experience of social media and website management is therefore essential. This is a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of a centre designed to deliver a revolution in healthcare technology.
