Department Of Sport & Exercise Science

Grade 7 (£33,199 - £39,609)

The Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences was officially launched in August 2018. Building on our established reputation for outstanding Sport and Exercise pedagogy, the department’s world-class scholarship brings together psychologists, physiologists, nutritionists, sociologists and political scientists. The multi- and inter-disciplinary nature of the team coalesces around two research themes: ‘Sporting Lives, subcultures and performance’, and ‘Sport and Physical Activity for Societal Change’. Currently undergoing an ambitious period of academic recruitment, the department is expanding expertise and global visibility across these two areas of research excellence.

Durham University is seeking to appoint a Research Associate on a full-time basis to work with Dr Emily Oliver on a programme of work focused on improving public mental health. The project is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) through the School for Public Health Research (SPHR). Fuse http://www.fuse.ac.uk/ is one of the members of the SPHR, and Durham University is one of the five Universities associated with Fuse.

This is an externally funded post and due to limited budget, it is fixed term for 12 months.
