The Department values diversity and equality. We recognise the importance of a healthy work-life balance and support our employees by accommodating flexibility in working patterns to suit caring needs.

A team of researchers and psychologists at the university are working on a new project aiming to increase psychological knowledge and expertise within the homelessness sector. There are multiple projects that stem from this aim, including the development of a new educational programme in homelessness.
This role requires you to develop and execute a robust evaluation programme of the overall projects. The evaluation will likely require both quantitative and qualitative methods to understand the impact of the projects and is only guided by general research questions so there is considerable autonomy in this role.

You will be responsible for planning and conducting analysis and interpretation and dissemination of findings of this project.
We invite applications from candidates who have a PhD or equivalent qualifications and experience in a quantitative field, such as Statistics, Medical Statistics, Health Services Research or Psychology. The title of Research Fellow is applied on completion of PhD, prior to this qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant is given.
You will be highly motivated, responsible, and creative. You will have excellent communication skills, be experienced in working with a diverse and inclusive team of staff and students, and be able to contribute to, and support the university and school strategies.
