Applications are invited for a part-time (0.4 FTE; 2 days per week) Research Fellow on a fixed-term contract of 12 months with flexible working time, starting in June 2019.

Responsibilities will include day to day management of all aspects of the study, and therefore proven research experience and project management skills are required. There may be opportunity to continue working with the team on planned follow-up studies which this 12 month project will inform.
