Job description

Coventry University is seeking an academic for the role of Research Fellow to join the Research Centre for Intelligent Healthcare and, specifically, its Behaviour and Implementation Science theme. In line with the theme's primary research, we welcome applications from early career researchers striving to develop research careers in the fields of behaviour change or domestic/sexual violence and health. The Centre aims to become a globally recognised research centre for pioneering and opinion-setting research in the area of digital healthcare and its contribution to improving communities and enriching and prolonging individual lives. The Centre is also home to a vibrant programme of work related to the fields of health behaviour change (e.g. smoking cessation studies and studies into sexual health) and abuse and mental health (e.g. cohort studies of survivor journeys and Cochrane Reviews).

Our Centre is further strengthened by our links with companies, hospitals, public health bodies through our Advisory Board, Honorary Research Fellows and Associates. We also have a growing team of PhD students who contribute to a thriving research environment. The multidisciplinary vision and team is evidenced through our three core themes within the Centre: Behaviour & Implementation Science, Epidemiology and Prototype Design, Testing & Regulation.

You will be joining a forward-thinking, progressive University and a Research Centre which is newly created and embarking on an exciting journey in healthcare interventions.

If you are interested in the position and wish to know more, please contact Lorna O'Doherty at ab8846@coventry.ac.uk. This is a permanent full-time post and we are looking to fill the position as soon as possible.
