CALL FOR SCIENTIFIC ADVISOR
Can you help lead the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) into our new strategic period and strengthen our advocacy work on tackling Health Inequalities?
The EPHA Board is launching this call for one or more Scientific Advisors to work with the EPHA team on a voluntary basis to provide support and advice to ensure that our advocacy work is well grounded in scientific evidence. In order to strengthen our work and ensure scientific rigour, we are seeking specialists in the following issues:
Health inequalities / social determinants of health (e.g. housing and sanitation, poverty, unemployment, ethnic discrimination), barriers to access to healthcare and group-specific needs and experiences (e.g. migrants, homeless, Roma, LGBTQ+, older people, youth, gender)
EPHA is a change agent – Europe’s leading NGO advocating for better health. We are a dynamic member-led organisation, made up of 90 public health NGOs, patient groups, health professionals and disease groups.
Our vision is of a Europe with universal good health and well-being, where all have access to a sustainable and high quality health system: A Europe whose policies and practices contribute to health, both within and beyond its borders.
About the role
Applicants should be able to demonstrate profound scientific expertise, as well as experience and peer-reviewed publications in one or more of the above-mentioned areas. The Scientific Advisor(s) will support EPHA’s Policy Coordinators with evidence-based data, provide guidance within the subject area, and keep us up to date with the latest research trends and debates.
The level of commitment may vary between 1-2 hours per month to 1-2 working hours per week, depending on the issue and your availability. The assignment will be time-limited (36 months, renewable).
In return for your contributions, EPHA will invite you to attend key meetings in Brussels (e.g. annual conference, certain advocacy meetings) and provide you with opportunities to present your outputs to our 85+ member organisations and public health policy partners. You will also be working with the members of EPHA’s new Working Group on Health Inequalities and be part of the wider group of EPHA Scientific Advisors.
