The Academy of Medical Sciences is seeking two capable and enthusiastic Grants Officers to join our dynamic grants team. The posts are available immediately and are to assist in delivering an expanding portfolio of grant schemes.

The Grants Officers will be responsible for the administration of the application process, peer review and selection panels for a sub-set of the Academy’s grant schemes.
