Dr Rebecca Devon
I have an MA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Medical Genetics from the University of Edinburgh.
Following postdoctoral research in Edinburgh and at the University of British Columbia, Canada, I decided to move away from an academic career.
I spent a period working as a freelance scientific editor of manuscripts written by non-English speaking authors while my children were small, then moved back to the University of Edinburgh to work in science communications.
I have been Science Manager for the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences since 2014. I have a varied role which is best described as strategic development of our Centre and supporting the academics across their wide range of activities throughout the lifecycle of a research project and beyond.
I support Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences academics with:
- strategy & Centre advancement
- grants, Worktribe, PURE & reporting outputs
- metrics & boiler-plate texts
- communications - websites, news, social media & events
- data management & data protection
I work closely with:
