The School of Population Health and Environmental Sciences at King’s College London is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow with postdoctoral experience to manage the qualitative component of a feasibility study for an evaluation of The Daily Mile, a scheme to get school children running for 15 minutes per day. The feasibility study will be largely conducted in the London borough of Lewisham. The post-holder will be responsible for conducting a case study of implementation in school settings, recruiting participants, conducting interviews with a range of stakeholders, including primary school age children, and potentially helping with a pilot study using accelerometers, analysis, writing up, and contributing to evaluation design.
This is an exciting post for an anthropologist or sociologist, ideally with some post-doctoral experience of qualitative research in school or health settings. The successful applicant will be an experienced qualitative researcher, who is confident in dealing with a range of collaborators and research participants, and would enjoy taking responsibility for developing methods for rapid ethnography, and contributing to planning for a full mixed method evaluation.
The selection process will include a panel interview, with a task of talking through how you would approach analysis of a short interview extract.
