The Organizations – EATRIS

EATRIS is a European consortium (9 EU countries) of translational research centres, providing access for researchers and third parties to cutting edge technologies and expertise. In translational medicine EATRIS helps to bring fundamental scientific breakthroughs towards clinical proof-of-concept in the therapeutic, diagnostic and device arena, and operates around five product areas (Biomarkers, Molecular Imaging & Tracers, Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products, Vaccines and Small Molecules).


The communication assistant will work with two organisations: EATRIS and the EU project BioMedBridges. The assistant will be based full time at the C&S office of EATRIS located on the campus of the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam and will work for both organisations.


EATRIS activities:

For the day to day communication with our European translational research centres we are looking for a multitasking individual with a background in biomedical science. You combine your background in biomedical science with your journalism skills by translating scientific papers and research results from our Key Opinion Leaders into easy readable and to-the-point stories for the EATRIS website and other EATRIS communication material. You are able to write both in lay-men language and on a scientific level but manage to make scientific complex matters simple and easy to read.


BioMedBridges activities:

BioMedBridges is an initiative of EBI – European Bio informatics Institutes, Hinxton, UK that aims to construct the e-infrastructure to allow interoperability between data and services in the biological, medical, translational and clinical domains. It will provide the computational ‘data and service’ bridges between the individual biological and medical sciences (BMS) research infrastructures (RIs) in Europe.


The communication assistant will support the EATRIS communications manager in the execution of the work package on stakeholder definition and stratification of the different BMS Ris and the execution of the inreach and outreach plans. For this you will be responsible to contact and build a relationship with the different BMS RI’s. You are willing to travel to conferences to promote adoption of BioMedBridges standards, best practices and tools. You also like to organize workshops or other meetings in which the different stakeholder groups of BioMedBridges will meet.
