Consultant- Science Outreach (Remote Role)

Humane Research Australia - Melbourne, VIC

Health, Medical & Pharmaceutical
Source: uWorkin

JOB DESCRIPTION

About the role

We are seeking a science graduate with biomedical research experience and established contacts in the industry. You have a solid understanding of the scientific arguments against animal experimentation and ideally knowledge of the framework around the use of animals in research in Australia. You have the confidence to articulate these arguments, alongside the ability to listen to and appreciate other perspectives. The use of animals in research is a divisive subject and you will likely face avoidance, ignorance, resistance, and even ridicule, alongside more positive responses. A flexible, pragmatic, and resilient approach is required to forge incremental change in this challenging area. 

Critical to our mission is outreach within the science community, whether than be researchers, medical research associations, peak bodies, animal ethics committee, students, journal editors or academics. Engagement with those who use animals; are considering the use of animals; or authorise the use of animals is essential if we are to change the current paradigm of animal models. Additionally, collaboration with researchers using non-animal methods is foreseen to enlist speakers for seminars and public talks. 

Key to the role is the development of constructive relationships within the biomedical research industry, the development of credible resources, strategic distribution of these resources, and the delivery of workshops, seminars or talks. This is a challenging and diverse role, which will see the successful candidate representing HRA at a range of forums, and provides the opportunity to make a tangible contribution to ethical and human-relevant science.
