Policy Advisor, Centre for Science and Policy (Fixed Term)

The Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) works with a unique network of academics and decision-makers in government to improve the use of evidence and expertise in public policy. Our approach is based on addressing the questions which policy makers identify, and on building relationships characterised by mutual understanding, respect and trust. The Centre is administratively anchored in Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS).


CJBS leverages the power of academia for real world impact to transform individuals, organiations and society. Since 1990, Cambridge Judge has forged a reputation as a centre of rigorous thinking and high-impact transformative education, situated within one of the world's most prestigious research universities, and in the heart of the Cambridge Cluster, the most successful technology entrepreneurship cluster in Europe.


The Centre is now seeking a Policy Advisor to prepare and deliver annual marketing plans to communicate potential policy engagement activities to researchers preparing grant applications across the University, through a mix of in-person and digital communications. This includes e-marketing, giving talks at events for researchers, and developing activities for use in training to develop researchers' awareness of policy engagement.


You will be educated to at least Bachelor's degree level, or an equivalent qualification. You will have experience of providing professional services to academic researchers and knowledge of the interactions between research and policy making. To be successful in this role you will have experience working in higher education or in a policy role, with knowledge of the 'impact' agenda in research funding. Excellent communication skills - both oral and written, and use of social media in a professional capacity are prerequisites for this role.
