Two Senior Researchers in Health Behaviours

The Health Behaviours Team within the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences is seeking to appoint two Senior Researchers (Health Behaviours) who will focus on the development, implementation and evaluation of population-level interventions to change dietary habits, pursuing a dedicated research area within the strategic remit of the team. Applicants should expect to play a substantive role in the development of research proposals by other members of the team and enhance the integration of our research with colleagues across the university as part of established programmes, including the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre and Wellcome Trust Livestock, Environment and People project.


Specific responsibilities of the role include conducting systematic reviews, developing protocols and ethical submissions, overseeing the conduct of the research, analysis of quantitative and qualitative data, interpretation of results and dissemination. A specific interest in interventions to change food purchasing would be an advantage.


The successful applicants will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil; with significant post-qualification research experience in applied research or public health; and specialist knowledge in applied behavioural and/or nutrition science. You will also have solid knowledge of research methods, the current literature and study design to inform the programme of research; a strong publication record; and direct experience in planning and managing all stages of research projects, with evidence of successful delivery of projects on time and budgets.


These posts are full-time, fixed-term to 31 May 2021 in the first instance, and will be based in Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford.


The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 7 December 2018. We will be holding interviews on Tuesday 18 December 2018.
