University of Bath – Department for Health

Join our internationally recognised Tobacco Control Research Group at the University of Bath

We're recruiting new academic, research and professional staff roles to support our work researching and exposing the tactics of the tobacco industry.

The Stopping Tobacco Organisations and Products (STOP) is a brand new global tobacco industry watchdog based partly in Bath alongside our partners:

  • Global Center for Good Governance in Tobacco Control, Thailand
  • International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union), Paris
  • Vital Strategies, New York

As such, STOP brings together the global leaders in tobacco industry monitoring and research, advocacy, accountability and communication. This unique combination will help ensure our research is widely and effectively communicated and maximally impactful.

This new watchdog, funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, will build on the successful research of the University of Bath’s Tobacco Control Research Group including its TobaccoTactics website. With focus on low and middle income countries, we will be extending the scale, geographic reach and responsiveness of our research.

You will be joining the Tobacco Control Research Group. Globally recognised for its research on the tobacco industry, it is a dynamic, multidisciplinary, award-winning research group, based in the Department for Health.  You will also benefit from close collaboration with the School of Management and the Department of Social & Policy Sciences within the University as well as with our dynamic project partners.
