Senior Health Researcher in Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems

Centre for Substance Use Research

We are looking to recruit a senior health researcher to work on surveys we are undertaking into the public health impact of e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems. The research we are developing will require someone with experience of setting up large scale surveys, analysing quantitative data, and producing research reports. The Centre for Substance Use Research was initially set up as a department within the University of Glasgow although the centre has functioned for the last six years as a fully independent research group. The research programme within the centre spans both quantitative and qualitative research into both legal and illegal drugs. The centre has an evolving stream of regulatory science research in which our studies are designed to answer questions about how best to regulate the expanding array of electronic nicotine delivery systems. Our research is carried out within a wide range of countries (UK, US, elsewhere in Europe). The person appointed to this post should have post doc research experience ideally, although not necessarily, in the area of quantitative studies of smoking cessation but certainly within one of the behavioural sciences.   It is likely that this post will involve some element of travel to present the results of the research at international conferences and meetings with funding agencies. The person appointed to this post will be based in our offices on the West of Scotland Science Park in Glasgow. This post is funded in the first instance for two years at a salary between £30,000 to £35,000. The person appointed to this post will work within an expanding team of behavioural researchers led by Dr Christopher Russell who can be contacted on
