This post is an excellent opportunity for an experienced and able Research Assistant to join a multidisciplinary team at Coventry University and to work with academics from the University of Bristol and University of Birmingham, and several charity and NHS partners.

The post-holder will be based in the Centre for Advances in Behaviour Science working directly with Dr Lorna O'Doherty on a study funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to evaluate the provision of services by sexual assault referral centres (SARCs) across England and undertake a cohort study of health and wellbeing in survivors of sexual violence as part of the 'Multidisciplinary Evaluation of Sexual Assault Referral Centres for better Health' (MESARCH) project. The role will be to support the running of the project, for example, by assisting with a systematic literature review and meta-synthesis; and collecting, coding, entering and analysing quantitative and qualitative data. There will be opportunities for participation in publications, training, seminars, attendance at conferences and teaching appropriate to the post holder's interests and expertise.

The post is funded from September 2018 for the full duration of the project to May 2022 (3 years and 9 months).

Due to the nature of this research, and the sensitive context within which the research is being undertaken, this post is only open to female applicants.
