You will work with expert research teams across a wide range of areas including psychology, public health, nursing and allied health professions; building upon our established national and international reputation in these areas. Creating research synergies across the Faculty, encouraging multi-disciplinary research, and supporting early career researchers will be an important aspect of the role-holder’s work.
