Job Description

The Task Force for Global Health (TFGH), based in Atlanta and founded nearly 40 years ago to advance health equity, works with partners in more than 150 countries to eliminate diseases, ensure access to vaccines and essential medicines, and strengthen health systems to protect populations. The Center for Vaccine Equity (CVE) works to assure all people have equal access to life-saving vaccines by expanding availability, supporting vaccine impact studies, and building delivery systems that facilitate access in developing countries. The ultimate goal is to build sustainable national adult vaccination platforms.

 

 

 

JOB DESCRIPTION: 

 

  • The Director of Research for the Brighton Collaboration (BC) works with the Scientific Director, BC in assessing data and information leading to science-related decisions that govern BC’s work.
  • The Director of Research will link directly with key partner organizations such as CEPI, CDC, Ministries of Health, the World Health Organization (WHO), pharmaceutical partners, and other organizations involved in vaccine safety.
  • The Director of Research will provide support and technical expertise to key funded projects (see below for initial allocations) and seek funding for additional projects as opportunity arises.
  • Director of
    Research will represent the program in various national and international settings.
  • Performs related responsibilities as required.

 

BRIGHTON COLLABORATION:

 

For the last two decades, the Brighton Collaboration has built trust in the safety of vaccines through rigorous science. It does this by developing standards [e.g., case definitions for adverse events following immunization (AEFI)/of special interest (AESI)], guidance, protocols, tools and international monitoring approaches for globally harmonized safety assessment of human vaccines (e.g., those in the WHO Expanded Program on Immunizations (EPI), vaccines for pandemic use, and others under development). SPEAC Project (50%): The Safety Platform for Emergency vACcines (SPEAC) is a BC project
funded by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness (CEPI). The project supports CEPI’s mission
to stimulate and accelerate the development of vaccines against emerging infectious diseases
and enable access to these vaccines for people during outbreaks by creating capacity and
solutions for harmonized safety assessment of CEPI vaccines. SPEAC 1.0, the first phase of this partnership which began May of 2019 and is funded through August 2022, provided oversight of vaccine safety for all trials, and potentially identifying issues of relevance across priority platforms and pathogens. The mission of SPEAC 2.0 is to provide best available scientific evidence on the safety of CEPI vaccines to support timely benefit-risk assessment during the vaccine life cycle. SPEAC 2.0 will support CEPI 2.0 by providing a harmonized vaccine safety assessment and monitoring service for CEPI and its awardees, in as many geographic regions where emerging pathogen vaccine studies will be conducted as budget permits with a focus on LMIC. It will do this by constantly reviewing and summarizing literature, evidence arising from expert groups and transforming this into educational and operational tools, definitions, guidelines, and best practice for harmonized safety assessment. CARESAFE Project (30%): Within the context of the CVE’s COVID-19 Vaccine Introduction Program (COVP) in up to 50 low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), funded in February, 2021, the CARESAFE project builds on existing CDC Global Immunization Division (GID)/Global Immunization Safety Team (GIST) and Task Force for Global Health (TFGH)/Brighton Collaboration (BC) platforms and technical expertise to work with 4 LMIC to pilot several, many relatively novel to LMIC, approaches to strengthen their vaccine safety capacity. Brighton Collaboration Program (20%): In collaboration with the Scientific Director, the Director of Research will develop a strategy for building on the legacy of the Brighton Collaboration and secure funding to strengthen the infrastructure and sustain ongoing efforts. In addition, the Scientific Director will have oversight of the website, staff, and collaborators including the BC Coordinators, volunteers, and science board.
