The IVVN are seeking a Network Administrative and Communications Assistant to join the IVVN Network Management Team and contribute to the range of networking, funding and outreach activities currently delivered by the network.
The IVVN, based at The Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, is a global network of over 1,000 members and the aim of the network is to facilitate the formation of international collaborations to improve vaccine development for livestock and zoonotic diseases in low-and-middle income countries (LMICs).

The nature of the work will require a combination of administrative, communication and organisation skills, and excellent attention to detail. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of an international network of researchers and to develop skills in science administrative and communication.
