Job description

The School of Medicine, Dentistry & Biomedical Sciences (MDBS) at Queen’s University Belfast, is currently seeking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the post of Research Fellow (Data) in the Centre for Public Health.

The GroundsWell Consortium, recently funded by the UK Prevention Research Partnership, aims to drive community innovation by applying systems science that maximises the contribution of Urban Green and Blue Space to the primary prevention of, and reduction of inequalities in, non-communicable diseases in urban settings. The Consortium has over 20 co-investigators across 7 institutions, as well as a range of non-academic stakeholders.

The post-holder will liaise with the investigators and researchers based at Queen’s University, Belfast, University of Liverpool and University of Edinburgh. The Research Fellow will work closely with the Directors, project partners and the Consortium Management group.

You will take responsibility for designing, analysing and disseminating a programme of co-produced research as part of GroundsWell. This will entail working with partners to co-develop and implement systems evaluations of a set of urban green and blue space interventions in Northern Ireland, publishing and disseminating outputs to relevant members in the consortium and the wider scientific community.

The successful candidate must have, and your CV/Cover letter (or application form) should clearly demonstrate you have:

  • Have or be about to obtain a relevant PhD in a Public Health or Social Science or relevant subject area
  • At least 3 years’ research experience in methods for developing and evaluating public health interventions; systems evaluation methods; and development and evaluation of urban green and blue space interventions
