The School of Population Health, based at the University of Auckland's Tamaki Campus, is seeking to employ a Research Fellow as part of a project team investigating ways in which unhealthy commodity industries (alcohol, tobacco, gambling and food) influence public policy.

The project goal is to understand specific mechanisms by which tobacco, alcohol, gambling and unhealthy food and beverage industries create conditions favourable for influencing policy-makers.

  • A track record of producing written publications, including technical reports and publishing in international peer-reviewed journals
  • Evidence of effective participation in research teams
  • Established working knowledge of social science methods
  • A sound understanding of key aspects of public health, including social and economic determinants

If this sounds like the next step in your career, we'd love to hear from you!

This is a part-time position (20 hours per week), available on a fixed term basis of three years.
