Research Officer (£24,000 - £28,000)

Full time - 37.5 hours per week. Based in Andover, Hampshire.

Are you somebody who would love to use your experience in scientific research to help us Beat Macular Disease?

Every day, around 300 people are diagnosed with macular disease. It’s the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK. Macular disease is cruel and isolating.  It steals your sight, your independence, and your ability to do the things you love. There is only one way to Beat Macular Disease for good. We must fund more research now, until we find a cure, or find treatments that stop it in its tracks.

The Macular Society is working to deliver our ultimate ambition – to Beat Macular Disease for the next generation. We are determined to end the fear and isolation of macular disease with world-class research and the best advice and support.

We are undergoing significant changes, with a transformational new strategy to multiply our income in order to fund research that will find a cure.

This role will work closely with the Research Manager to manage and grow the research programme to £5million per year by 2023. As part of a small team the role involves a varied range of responsibilities.
