Position overview

ANU has an international reputation for research and education relevant to health and well being of the population of Australia, as well as that of the developing world. 

This is achieved through discovery research, applied research in health service setting, research-led teaching in health and medical sciences, and the translation of research findings into practice and policy. 

The ANU College of Health and Medicine comprises the Research School of Psychology, the ANU Medical School, The John Curtin School of Medical Research and the Research School of Population Health. These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels.

This fixed term, three year full-time Research Fellow position sits within a very high quality research environment at The National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH), part of the Research School of Population Health. NCEPH offers a unique, multi-disciplinary environment to support early career academics and has a tradition of excellence in studying the social and cultural determinants of health. The position is part of a multidisciplinary and multisector research project funded by the Australian Research Council. The project will be in partnership with policy makers covering the portfolios of employment, social services, workplace health and social justice.

The project investigates a major social challenge – how to design productive work that accommodates older workers’ health needs in ways that are fair and feasible. This position will contribute to strengthening and maintaining the Centre’s research leadership in social and cultural processes, work, time and health, by leading and supporting the collection and analysis of quantitative data.

The project combines qualitative and quantitative methods in a set of five interrelated sub-studies to be conducted over three years, and is part of a wider research program on the social and cultural determinants of health.  You will be expected to have advanced quantitative skills, have a social science or related background, and be excited about and committed to creating a high impact research and policy collaboration.
