The International Society for Influenza and other Respiratory Virus Diseases (isirv) is a global scientific association, bringing together and developing services for researchers and clinicians engaged in confronting Influenza, RSV, MERS-CoV and other respiratory virus diseases. It acts within an environment that includes regional networks as well as intergovernmental organisations such as the World Health Organisation.
Created in 2005, isirv has a membership of over 1400 medical scientists, clinicians and public health officials. The Society holds a major influenza conference every three years and a series of other scientific meetings. It also manages a journal, Influenza and other Respiratory Viruses, and a website reflecting the Society's activities and the interests of its members.
This is a new role to help expand the Society's activities, through collaboration with other organisations, nurturing relations with companies to support its scientific and educational programme, and providing governance support to the Board. It requires someone with international experience, able to act at a senior level.
As isirv has no offices, the person will work from home and could be based in any country, although the current centre of activity is London, United Kingdom.
