About the role
We have an exciting opportunity for a Nutrition Scientist to join us on a fixed-term contract for 12 months. The postholder will be responsible for providing scientific and research expertise for the Global Nutrition Report (GNR). Nutrition research will include, but will not be limited to, evidence synthesis, protocol development and writing content for the GNR.
The post holder will be accountable for delivery of specific GNR content, and will work under the guidance and oversight of the Independent Expert Group (IEG) Chair and IEG members as appropriate.
We are looking for someone who is knowledgeable in nutrition research methodology, analysis and reporting, with a sound understanding of nutrition indicators/metrics, dataset management, nutrition data from different countries and regions, diet-disease links and nutrition/food policies.
The successful candidate will need a Master’s degree in nutrition, nutritional epidemiology, public health, food policy or a related field. You must have two years’ professional experience in nutritional research at postgraduate level and a good publication record of at least five published articles in peer-reviewed journals.
We are experimenting with a blended approach to home and office working and so are flexible on your location, provided that you are based within the UK and can visit our offices in Bristol on a regular basis.
We would also be interested in hearing from candidates who wish to apply for the position on a consultancy basis.
