Cochrane is a global independent network of health practitioners, researchers, patient advocates, and others, responding to the challenge of making the vast amounts of evidence generated through research useful for informing decisions about health. We do this by identifying, appraising, and synthesizing individual research findings to produce the best available evidence on what can work, what might harm and where more research is needed.
Our work is recognized as the international gold standard for high quality, trusted information. We want to be the leading advocate for evidence-informed health care across the world.
This exciting position of Online Learning and Support Officer is an opportunity for a candidate with experience in design and development of engaging online learning resources and an ambition to make a difference in the field of healthcare research, to join Cochrane’s Learning and Support Department, and help us deliver our Training and Professional Development Strategy.
You will be able to work with a wide range of international content contributors, and bring a talent for instructional design to develop engaging new online resources for the Cochrane Training website. You will also help us to implement new technology products, including supporting the use of our new Learning Record Store.
The ideal candidate will understand technical and pedagogical approaches to developing online learning, and have experience of design and production of online learning resources as well as web editing. An excellent communicator and collaborator, you are able to use your interpersonal and written skills to translate complex technical research material into learning resources. An understanding of Cochrane specifically and health research more generally is an advantage, but not essential.
The majority of Cochrane Central Executive staff are located in London, UK; however a flexible location is possible for the right candidate. For more information, please see the full job description.
