GDI is looking for a Research Communications Officer to help plan and deliver communication activities to boost the academic impact of our research.

You’ll also lead our alumni engagement efforts, looking for mutually beneficial opportunities to get research insights into use. You’ll support events, lead our internal communications and liaise closely with relevant teams across the university.
You’ll have a working knowledge of key development issues and relevant experience gained in a communications role, ideally within a research or policy related environment.
