The Role

Population Health Sciences Institute (PHSI), Newcastle University is working with the University of Southampton on an NIHR Applied Research Collaboration funded study to evaluate Cautioning And Relationship Abuse (‘CARA') awareness raising workshops for first time offenders of domestic violence and abuse. The evaluation is a mixed method project which includes a quasi-experimental study of the effects of CARA upon reoffending rates and a linked qualitative study.

You should have experience of carrying out good quality research within agreed timelines, meeting project milestones and ideally some experience of working with the criminal justice system and / or marginalised communities. Experience in a range of methodologies would also be beneficial including qualitative methods, literature reviewing and evidence synthesis and public involvement, engagement and/or participatory methods.

The post will suit an individual who is planning to develop a career in Public Health Research with a specific focus on health inequalities and marginalised communities.

The Population Health Sciences Institute is committed to supporting equality, diversity and inclusion for all staff and students. Applications for part time/flexible working are welcome; please state your desired working arrangements in your application.
