Job Advert 187
Curator/Editor for the SMMGP Clinical Update

SMMGP is currently undergoing a major "refurbishing" in readiness for the launch of our new website and programme next year. We will be launching our redesigned website and will be moving to a new, improved format for our newsletters and updates.

Changes in the team have resulted in an exciting opportunity to appoint a curator for our respected Clinical Update as Dr Euan Lawson, who has been writing it on our behalf for many years, is stepping down to expand his other roles. The Clinical Update is included with the Policy Update in the regular SMMGP "News & Updates" release and is one of SMMGP's most popular outputs amongst our membership.

This is a paid freelance position (two sessions per update at £200 per session) and the position would appeal to someone who has a keen interest in the drug and alcohol field, a curiosity about current research in the field, the ability to write well and comment on papers, and preferably an interest in promoting SMMGP's profile with respect to the Clinical Update on social and networking media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter.

Clinical Updates are published approximately 6 times a year. Applications welcome from clinicians as well as non-clinicians.

Do you think your organisation could provide this service? We would welcome submissions from individuals, as well as research groups and organisations.

To apply for the vacancy, please select a recent and relevant clinical paper from the drug and alcohol field, write a short summary of it (approximately 500 words) and comment on it.

See our SMMGP Clinical & Policy Updates section for examples of past Updates.

Please submit your applications to for the attention of Dr Steve Brinksman
