Type of position: Seconded National Expert 

Job title: SNE/Experts in Clinical Trials

Deadline for applications: 22 August 2022 at 23.59 CET 

 

The European Medicines Agency is a decentralized body of the European Union with all its offices and Headquarters based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Its core responsibility is the protection and promotion of public health through the evaluation and supervision of medicines.

 

We are looking for National experts on secondment. This means staff from other European public-sector bodies can work at the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for short periods of time through the national expert on secondment (SNE) programme. The aim of this programme is to enhance and develop the relationship between European public administrations.

 

SNEs serve a dual role: they bring their expertise to EMA and take back to their home administration the knowledge acquired during their period of secondment. SNEs remain in the service of their employer. Secondment is not equivalent to employment, nor does it lead to employment by EMA. Periods of secondment may last between six months and two years. This is renewable once or more, up to a total of four years.

 

This announcement is governed by the Rules governing the secondment of national experts. For further information please visit our Careers portal.
