    Scientific or medical research editor/ writer/ proof reader

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago

    Scientific Researcher, academic science writer/ editor: Analytical Chemistry, Natural Chemistry, Environmental Toxicology, Biochemistry. A brief summary of education and experience: -Four years experience as a Research Associate at Kings College London University, -PhD in Environmental Toxicology and Microbiology, -Scientific Editorial Assistant at British Journal of Cancer, -BSc in Medical Biochemistry at Kings College London University. I am hardworking, enthusiastic and reliable. I am highly motivated and take pride in completing tasks to the best of my ability. Detailed outline of education and experience: Research Associate on the Traffic project, Kings College London University: The traffic project is a large multi-institution research project to better understand the health problems caused by air pollution and noise from traffic in London. My responsibility in this project was to determine pollution toxicity and metal content on a daily basis, then to construct an analytical data-set of daily time-series measurements comprising a comprehensive range of pollution metrics. This involved intensive laboratory processing as well as analysis and handling of a meta-database. Research Associate on the Exhale study, Kings College London University: The Exhale study is a project to assess the impact of the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ), introduced as a measure to improve the air quality in London. This study was designed to assess the impact of the LEZ on the respiratory health of school children in East London. My responsibility in this study involved conducting health assessments in 8-9 year-old children, including measurements of respiratory health, biomarkers of exposure to traffic-related air pollution, genetic susceptibility to the effects of air pollution and systemic response to air pollution. As part of this study, we also provided education for the Year 4 class at each school we visited, teaching them about the science and history of air pollution. BBSRC funded PhD Studentship, University of Dundee: I completed a PhD in Environmental Toxicology, within the Division of Molecular Microbiology, investigating the toxicity and occurrence of a naturally occurring aquatic neurotoxin, produced by cyanobacteria (Blue-Green Algae). BMAA is associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS and acts as an excitotoxin by hyper-activating glutamatergic Ca2+ signalling pathways. This provided me with many skills including excellent research experience, independent project management, lateral thinking, multi-tasking, presentation and analytical skills. In addition I achieved a wealth of tertiary level teaching experience; directing practical laboratory demonstration for undergraduate courses, as well as being responsible for the full time supervision of undergraduate and master’s students. I developed very good communication skills, presenting my personal and collaborative research at many international conferences, to a range of medical and scientific disciplines. August 2005 – February 2006 British Journal of Cancer, CRUK Scientific Editorial Assistant • Position included all aspects of assistance for publishing authors and editorial board, allowing me to develop my scientific communication skills and understanding of the peer-reviewed publishing process. • Administrative duties included receipt and recording of manuscripts, proof reading, referencing and organising referees. Selection of scientific publications: Purdie, E.L., Samsudin, S., Eddy, F.B., Codd, G.A. Effects of the cyanobacterial neurotoxin β-N-methylamino-L-alanine on the early-life stage development of zebrafish (Danio rerio). 2009a. Aquatic Toxicology 95 (4), 279-284. Purdie, E.L., Metcalf, J.S., Kashmiri, S., Codd, G.A. Toxicity of the cyanobacterial neurotoxin β-N-methylamino-L-alanine to three aquatic animal species. 2009b.

    Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

    United States - Last active: 20 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

    I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.
