We offer an exciting opportunity at the University of Liverpool for an early career candidate with a quantitative research background in psychology, public health or the behavioural sciences. The post will entail leading collaborative research with the University of Oxford and partners as part of the new NIHR funded Biomedical Research Unit ‘Preventing multiple morbidities: co-designing interventions for the whole population and focused interventions for individuals with mental illnesses. The programme of research aims to reduce premature morbidity and mortality and narrow health inequalities by:

  • Working with the public and policy makers to co-design and test policy and general population interventions to prevent non-communicable diseases (NCD) by changing behaviours of relevance to health (e.g. food choice, alcohol consumption).
  • Co-designing and testing preventative interventions for individuals with mental illness that respond to their social exclusion and neuropsychological difficulties and intervene on the big four preventable risk factors (smoking, diet and obesity, and physical activity).

You will be based in the Department of Psychology, Institute of Population Health. The position will involve:

  • Being the lead University of Liverpool post-doctoral fellow and working closely with other partners in the NIHR unit (e.g. University of Oxford) to collaboratively achieve the aims of the research programme.
  • Designing, executing, analyse and disseminating research studies that test the effect that psychologically informed population level interventions (e.g. targeting diet, alcohol) have on health behaviour using semi-naturalistic laboratory methods and real-world trials.
  • Where appropriate, applying for research funding (e.g. PhD studentships, external grants) that complements the overarching programme of research.
  • Working collaboratively with colleagues at the University of Liverpool (e.g. Department of Primary Care and Mental Health) in line with existing research themes (e.g. Connected Mental Health).

This is a career development post and candidates are expected to show evidence of leading and publishing the findings of research projects as 1st author in internationally recognised academic journals. This post is a 5 year Tenure-Track, those successful in ‘Confirmation in Appointment’ at year 3 will be made permanent.

The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received
