The University of Exeter wishes to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Associate to support the work of Dr Cornelia Guell. This partly Academy of Medical Sciences-funded and partly MRC-funded post is available August 2017 to January 2019. This is an ideal opportunity for applicants who have recently completed their PhD to join two public health research projects: a secondary qualitative data analysis of pooled UK-based studies on travel as a social practice and incidental physical activity; and an international project that investigates the health and social impact of local food production in small island developing states.
The post will include:
- Conducting research as appropriate to the two projects by assisting data management, conducting literature and database searches as part of a systematic scoping review; qualitative data coding and analysis with NVivo11 and Dedoose of already collected data, and engaging in co-analysis with the research team across institutions and settings.
- Contributing to the production and presentation of research reports, academic publications and evidence briefs.
- Providing administrative support to the principal investigator and other project researchers as required, including assisting study coordination, attending project meetings and liaising with members of the research team.
You will possess a relevant PhD (or near completion) in a social or health science field or have equivalent research experience, have training and experience to analyse qualitative data and use qualitative data management software such as NVivo or Dedoose, and have a strong interest in public health research. Experience of quantitative data analysis would be an advantage but is not essential.
Have a strong desire to learn new analysis methodologies and a willingness to actively contribute to the wider efforts of the international research team. Able to present information on research progress and outcomes, communicate complex information, orally, in writing and electronically and prepare proposals and applications to external bodies.
