Research Assistant (Cohort Studies)

Dogs Trust

Are you a Researcher with a backgroound in animal welfare science?  Are you organised and efficient with good inter-personal skills?  Can you work well independently and as part of a team?

Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK, with a nationwide network of rehoming centres and charity shops.  Last year, Dogs Trust centres cared for over 15,000 dogs; we never put a healthy dog down.

Dogs Trust is committed to ensuring best practice in the care and welfare of dogs. To achieve this aim, it is important that a robust and critical approach is taken when collecting data, and evaluating both research evidence and current activity. The collection and analysis of relevant data, for example through the use of cohort studies of dog owners, is key to developing strategies for optimum welfare of dogs.

Reporting to the Senior Veterinary Epidemiologist, the aim of this position is to carry out the day to day administrative work required to run Dogs Trust cohort studies (‘Generation Pup’ and post adoption projects).  Assistance with other research projects being conducted within Dogs Trust will also be required from time-to-time.
