*Research is a London-based publisher of print and online media for the international research community and a developer of technology to deliver that content and data.

Applicants must have excellent written and spoken English skills and must have a sharp eye for detail.

The position is permanent and full-time, with an expected start date in November 2016. The starting salary for the position is £20,000pa (pro rata) with a 35-hour work week.
