EFIC are seeking one or more ‘Research Project Assistants’ to support its growing portfolio of research activities.
Current activities requiring support include:
- Supporting EFIC’s role within EU-funded research and educational projects, including dissemination activities, coordinating work-packages, organizing workshops and surveys, assisting with literature reviews and expert consultations.
- Supporting the development of EFIC’s contribution to proposals for research and educational projects and background work to facilitate an expanded role for EFIC in future
- Supporting EFIC’s educational activities, namely the EFIC Academy and the educational basis for the e-learning tools and examination content
