An exciting opportunity exists for a highly motivated researcher in behavioural science to work on the Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability & Health (CUSSH) programme.

CUSSH is a Wellcome Trust funded delivering key global research on the systems that connect urban development & population health.

Through these partnerships the project aims to support transformative policy interventions in areas including energy, transport, green infrastructure, water & sanitation, and housing.

You will design & conduct interdisciplinary research & stakeholder engagement in the CUSSH partner cities, with a specific focus on the use of evidence, theory & methods from behavioural science, in conjunction with the use of participatory & systems research methods.
