Senior Public Health Research Assistant

Public Health Wales

Public Health Wales is the national public health agency in Wales and exists to protect and improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities for people in Wales.

We are looking to recruit a Senior Public Health Research Assistant to join our Policy, Research and International Development Directorate, working on the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) research programme. The ACE research programme aims to reduce ACEs, increase resilience to the harms caused by ACEs and develop trauma-informed services for those suffering from their impact across the life course. The work is being led by Public Health Wales but is linked in with Welsh Government, academic institutes across Wales and international bodies including the World Health Organization.

The post holder will form a key part of a dedicated research group examining how best to build resilience to the impact of childhood adversity in the Welsh population and consequently reduce the negative impacts of ACEs on health, criminal justice, education and employment. They will support delivery of a new national ACEs and Resilience survey and contribute to analyses, report and journal publication outputs based on the data collected. The successful candidate will be working in a growing and highly productive research team within the Policy, Research and International Development Directorate led by Professor Mark Bellis.
