The Access to Medicine Foundation is a non-profit organisation based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Our mission is to stimulate and guide pharmaceutical companies to do more for the two billion people worldwide who cannot access the medicines they need. The core pillar of our work is researching how pharmaceutical companies address the affordability and accessibility of their products in low and middle-income countries. To turn our research into real-world change, we engage with leading organisations, including companies, NGOs and governments.
We are looking for a researcher that is proactive, solution-oriented, self-motivated, curious, flexible, and would like to contribute to advancing the research activities at the Foundation. In this role you will excel as a team player who collaborates, communicates clearly and who also is willing to challenge peers.
Our research products, The Access to Medicine Index and the Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark, are valued by a wide network of experts and external stakeholders including pharmaceutical companies and industry watchers, governments, international agencies such as the United Nations and World Health Organization, pharma journalists, investors and global health professionals and academics. The Foundation also publishes stand-alone studies about the pharmaceutical industry. It identifies best practices, highlights where progress is being made, and uncovers where critical action is still required.
With these tools and outreach work, the Foundation provides both an incentive and a guide for pharmaceutical companies to do more to improve access to medicine. Each new product brings new opportunities to stimulate change and to advance the global debate on access to medicine. Quality research and analysis are essential activities within the Access to Medicine Foundation to achieve these change making goals.
Interested in this exciting opportunity? Please send your cover letter with your motivation on why you would like to join the Access to Medicine Foundation and how you think you will fit in our team, your resume, the contact details of two references (e-mail address and/or phone number), and two writing samples (i.e. published article, thesis or white paper) to Mrs. Mireille Deen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application will not be considered unless it is complete and all supporting documentation has been provided. There will be no compensation for relocation costs.
