New post @Marco Viceconti’s group in Bologna: dissemination, communication, and community engagement on in silico medicine

In the frame of the Strituvad project we are opening a new position for communication officer.  The position is initially for 12 months, but can be extended for additional two.

The aim of this research contract is the creation of a community of practice around the emerging applications of the so-called in silico medicine, with particular reference to in silico trials, where modelling and simulation technologies are used for the certification of new drugs or medical devices. Under the guidance of Prof Marco Viceconti one of the tope world-wide experts on in silico medicine, the researcher will create the content and manage web sites, social network accounts, e-newsletters, and online communities allowing all those interested in the topic who work in academia, industry, consulting or service firms or in regulatory agencies to exchange good practices on the use of modelling and simulation in medicine. The post is funded by the EU project STRITUVAD, which aims to develop in silico methods to reduce the cost of clinical trials for new therapies for tuberculosis in developing countries where this disease is endemic.

The ideal candidate should have:

  • A Master degree (Laurea Magistrale) or equivalent title in scientific disciplines or Communication Science
  • Excellent knowledge of English language (written and spoken)
  • Priority will be given to candidates with experience in Science Communication, dissemination of research results, networking and community building among scientists, production of press releases
