Category: Professional Support | Department: Department of Global Health and Development | Closing Date: 10 Dec 2014 | We are seeking to appoint an Administrative assistant to join the Social and Mathematical Epidemiology group (SaME) to support the work of epidemiologists, economists, modellers and social scientists. SaME project teams design and implement research, analysis and evaluation processes in the UK and worldwide, in order to understand and address the social and economic factors – including violence against women and human trafficking – that increase vulnerability to HIV and other health challenges.
SaME is a dynamic research group within the Department of Global Health and development that conducts rigorous, action-oriented research on HIV/AIDS and on interpersonal violence. The team of 42 spans four disciplines: social epidemiology, mathematical modelling, health economics and behavioural science.

SWIFT (Study on Work in Freedom Transnational Evaluation), also funded by DFID, evaluates interventions to address the worst forms of labour exploitation. SaME is engaged in a number of long term studies of gender violence and health.
The Administrative Assistant will provide logistical and administrative support to the SAME group. Main responsibilities will include organizing and facilitating travelling and meetings, diary management, assisting with financial tasks and acting as a central point of contact for group members and visitors. She/he will work closely with the Programme Co-ordinator, Rosa Arqués and other SaME staff.
