The Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) invites interested individuals to serve on the Expert Advisory Group (EAG), a body that is part of the formal governance structure of the MPP.
The EAG provides expert advice to the Board and Executive Director of the MPP, particularly with respect to ongoing negotiations that the MPP is engaged in, and evaluates the results of negotiations to determine whether a proposed licence agreement meets MPP’s stated goals and offers significant benefits for public health. The Terms of Reference for EAG can be found HERE.
The MPP is now seeking a candidate to serve on the EAG with expertise in life sciences practice and the research & development of medicines. The ideal candidate will have significant experience in drug discovery and drug development in the pharmaceutical industry or in product development partnerships, as well as extensive knowledge of initiatives and policies on access to medicines in developing countries as they pertain to the research and development of medical technologies.
Members of the EAG serve in their personal capacity and on a non-remunerated basis.
Interested applicants should send their C.V. and a motivation letter to email@example.com by 20 August 2019.
