Applications are sought for an enthusiastic Research Fellow (Qualitative) position who has experience of conducting research in low and middle income countries to join the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Applied Health Research. The Research Fellow will support mainly the MaaCiwara project in Mali, an exciting large Medical Research Council funded cluster randomised controlled trial evaluating behavioural interventions and social norm change to reduce childhood diarrhoea and malnutrition in Mali. The intervention, taking place in urban and rural areas, aims to change parental behaviours to improve complementary food safety, hygiene, and nutrition for children aged 6-30 months. The intervention will be evaluated through both quantitative and qualitative means. The study is led by the University of Birmingham and including strong collaboration with Malian Governmental and the University of Bamako, as well as international organizations such as ICDDR,B, and WaterAid; and other British academic partners.
We are recruiting for a self-starter and motivated Research Fellow (Qualitative) to conduct the qualitative components of this project, including set-up, data collection, data analysis, and dissemination in Mali and the UK. The research fellow will also contribute to further funding bids and creation of new research projects, as well as supporting research or teaching in the wider university.
The project will have a strong capacity building in Mali component, which the research fellow will be involved in – including training and mentoring local staff, and possibly supervising PhD students. Travel to urban parts of Mali for up to 2-6 weeks, may be required for this role (although there is some flexibility about this).
