Director of Health Promotion Policy
The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, energetic leader to direct CSPI’s Health Promotion Policy (HPP) Project. The HPP Project advocates for national and local government policies that promote health and prevent diet-related chronic disease. The project also educates the public and encourages food manufacturers to improve their products. An integral component of those activities is engaging health professionals, non-profits, scientists, the media, and the public in supporting those efforts. The project’s current focus is on reducing soft-drink, sodium, and sugar consumption, and eliminating artificial trans fat from the food supply.
The successful candidate will have a M.P.H., Ph.D., M.D.or other relevant graduate degree, and at least ten years of experience in a leadership role in public health advocacy. Experience on Capitol Hill or the executive branch would be valuable. Sophisticated understanding of the impact of diet on health and demonstrated public-interest orientation, as well as experience in conceiving and implementing national advocacy campaigns, are essential. The position is full-time and based in Washington, D.C.
