Senior Policy Analyst (Law and Regulation), Cambridge

Senior Policy Analyst (Law and Regulation), Cambridge

Closing date: 1 June 2021

Are you excited at the prospect of using your legal and regulatory expertise to set the agenda for innovation and health? Cambridge-based health policy think-tank, the PHG Foundation, seeks a talented and enthusiastic person with expertise in law or regulation who is passionate about the law and ethics of biomedical innovation and cutting-edge healthcare. As part of our humanities team, you will work with colleagues in science, healthcare and policy to research, analyse and communicate legal and ethical positions into the policy process for new biomedical innovations.

You must have a good grasp of the legal, regulatory and ethical landscape around healthcare, data and digital technologies; and first class analytical, drafting and communication skills. A first degree in law or a postgraduate qualification in medical law and ethics or similar would be a distinct advantage but, most importantly, you must be able to transfer your academic grounding into actionable policy applications. You will have excellent research and analytic skills, together with ambition to drive the development of health policy and the wider policy context. You will be an excellent networker and have the personal qualities to work creatively and effectively in a small team of highly-motivated colleagues, liaising with individuals and organisations across the health policy landscape.

This role offers intellectually challenging work and a chance to influence the development of law and policy in a rapidly evolving field. In turn, you will help the PHG Foundation to further develop its reputation as a leading independent health policy think tank. The Foundation is a linked exempt charity of the University of Cambridge.

The deadline for applications is 9am on Tuesday 1 June 2021 and interviews will be held on 22 June 2021.
