The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) is looking for a new managing director. EASL is a non-profit organization (NPO) with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. It performs its duty under a written constitution.
EASL was established in 1966 by a founding group of 70 European hepatologists. Over the past 50 years it has grown into a major European medical association with significant international representation and global influence. EASL currently has over 4,000 members from all continents, and the annual meeting is now the major international scientific event for liver diseases with more than 10,000 participants.
EASL’s core mission is the promotion of research and education concerning the liver and liver diseases. EASL runs a comprehensive portfolio of conferences, schools and related educational meetings. More recently, EASL has established a broad collection of online education and digital tools. EASL also runs its own journal, the Journal of Hepatology, one of the leading journals in gastroenterology and hepatology (impact factor more than 12). EASL supports the education and mobility of young scientists, and provides a broad range of travel bursaries and fellowships. EASL acts as an advisor to European and national health authorities, and in 2015 opened a Brussels office to support these activities. All EASL activities and projects are coordinated and executed by the EASL office in Geneva, which currently hosts approximately 30 employees across several departments. The current office covers a broad range of expertise from events management, education and publishing to marketing, finance management and public relations.
