Oferta de trabajo: Impact Manager PERIS GO Europe


The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) is a cutting-edge institute addressing global public health challenges through research, translation into policy and education. ISGlobal has a broad portfolio in communicable and non-communicable diseases including environmental and climate determinants, and applies a multidisciplinary scientific approach ranging from the molecular to the population level. ISGlobal is accredited with the Severo Ochoa distinction, a seal of excellence of the Spanish Science Ministry.



What We Are Looking for

In the framework of Peris Go Europe Project “Go-INTERNATIONAL - Lideratge internacional de la Unitat de Projectes d’ISGlobal” (SLT028/23/000037) funded by Ministry of Health, Government of Catalonia, ISGlobal is seeking an Impact Manager to support researchers in the preparation of proposals,  particularly the impact section, as well as in identifying and documenting impact of past and ongoing research projects.
