circa £28,000 per annum

12 month fixed-term contract

A vacancy has arisen with the National Clinical Guideline Centre (NCGC) for an
information scientist.

Based in the NCGC's offices as a member of the Centre's information science
team the role involves working closely with the Centre's guideline technical
teams and liaising with the RCP Library. The main duties include literature
searching for clinical guidelines, managing references in reference management
software, ordering references and maintaining clear audit trails.

Education to degree level is essential as are good IT skills and some
experience of searching electronic bibliographic databases such as Embase,
Medline and The Cochrane Library. Equally important to working to a high level
of attention to detail are strong inter-personal skills and the ability to
interact professionally at all times within the Centre and with NHS healthcare
professionals. A relevant postgraduate qualification in library or information
science is essential, although candidates studying for such a course with
relevant experience will also be considered. Please be aware this is not a
library-based role. Training for all aspects of the job will be provided.

The position is fixed term for 12 months.

If you have related experience and a desire to make a difference in improving
healthcare delivery and the quality of patient care, we would be delighted to
hear from you. The NCGC produces evidence-based clinical practice guidelines
on behalf of NICE, specialising in guidance for acute and chronic conditions
across a wide and varied range of clinical topics. The NCGC is a vibrant,
dedicated and enthusiastic team with a staff currently of around 70 people and
is part of the Royal College of Physicians of London. See the NCGC website at
