This is a great opportunity to work on a high profile European project
alongside other RSC colleagues. The RSC is part of a three year Innovative
Medicines Initiative project called Open PHACTS (please visit the website
openphacts.org). With 28 partners, the consortium is building a freely
available platform, integrating pharmacological data from a variety of
information resources, and providing tools and services to question this
integrated data to support pharmacological research. The RSC's input into the
project is in the areas of cheminformatics and community engagement. This
opportunity is to carry out the community engagement responsibilities, in
conjunction with the other RSC colleagues, promoting and developing the
project's business plan with our consortium partners and associated partners.
Your core role will be to build the project's visibility and deliver the
project's community engagement and product development tasks. You will
coordinate the definition and implementation of the project development plan
and contribute to the business plan for post-project sustainability. You will
build strong interactions with the project's associate partners, and develop
and implement the project's communication plan in consultation with Richard
Kidd and project partners. This will involve creating publicity materials to
promote the project, and coordinating planned community workshops with project
partners and associated organisations.
For more information on the project, we recommend you look at the recent
description of the project through the Open PHACTS website (see related links,
below) and talk to Richard Kidd (01223 432344 - candidates only, no agencies
please) if you're interested.
